This was the book that really put me on the map as
a Draw Bias researcher.
The book received many glowing testimonials from punters
and industry commentators alike.

It was on the back of this book that the Drawn2Win

I am very proud to say that I still have many members

Bias 2001 Book Contents
Bias 2001 deals with two vital factors in British flat
racing - the class of a horse, (focusing on handicap
races), and the importance of where a horse is drawn.
Now, we need to face some important facts. Many racecourses
are biased in some way. Some help front-runners, others
help galloping types, others favour course specialists.
Knowledge of such factors is a vital part of a punter's
armoury. However, possibly the most important type of
bias is the draw.
At some tracks a poor draw can all but wipe out the
chance of a particular horse. All punters know that
the draw at certain courses is influential - this book
discusses how influential.
Chapter 1 looks in detail at the most
consistently draw biased courses in the country over
sprint distances (5 & 6 furlongs), based on the
statistics of the past five seasons (1996 - 2000).
Chapter 2 examines courses that show
draw bias in races of 7 furlongs or above. Amazingly
there is a course that shows a strong bias at a distance
of over 10 furlongs!
Chapter 3 discusses courses that show
draw bias under specific conditions. For example, some
courses only seem to show bias when the stalls are placed
on a particular side of the track; others only seem
to show bias on certain types of going; whereas bias
at some courses is directly related to the number of
runners in a race.
Chapter 4 looks at courses that cannot
be considered truly "biased", but are still
of interest in terms of the draw. The effect of "pace
bias" will also be briefly discussed in this chapter.
Chapter 5 looks at the theory that
if a horse runs well from a poor draw, it is a horse
worth following closely in subsequent races. Some examples
from the past five seasons are discussed and analysed.
Having dealt in depth in the first four chapters with
Chapter 6 looks at the effect of weight
carried by horses in handicaps, focusing on the shorter
distances (especially 5 furlongs). In the past, statistics
have indicated that horses at the top of the handicap
perform better than those down the bottom. This will
be examined in a similar way as the draw.
Chapter 7 caters for both the serious
"form student", and the "armchair punter".
For the "form student" it describes the methods
I use when analysing a race, and for the armchair punter
at a simple system, which combines both the draw and
the weight carried by a horse. This has shown a clear
profit over the past five seasons and is ideal for the
armchair punter who wishes to make his selections in
under 2 minutes. The idea behind the system is very
simple and easy to adapt.
