Ripon Pace Bias Statistics

The graphs below indicate what percentage of horses with a particular running style won over each particular distance.

The three different styles are horses that led, horses which were mid pack, and horses held up at the back.

The Pace Indicator (PI) is a quick representation of the analysis, and indicates the style of running which is most favourable over each particular distance. A PI of 2 would indicate that all winners led. A PI score of 0 would mean that all winners were held up. Obviously the actual figure is always somewhere in between depending on the pace bias which exists.

Ripon has a reputation as a front runners course with the analysis completely backing this up. Over 5 furlongs Ripon has the largest pace bias favouring front runners out of all of the turf tracks. It is virtually impossible for hold up horses to win over that distance.

In terms of the other individual distances, this is where ripon ranks:

6 Furlongs - 1st out of 31 courses
8 Furlongs - 1st out of 29 courses
