Chester Racecouse - also known as the Roodee is famous and notorious for its tight turns and its short circular loop.
The draw in Cheshire could not be more imperative to a horse's chance of success - a low draw gives horses the advantage with the use of the inside rail, whilst horse's posted wide are left jockeying for positions and have sufficiently more ground to cover.
Winning horses from an inside draw are not necessarily the best in the race nor just lucky, but instead have maximised their opportunity from the best possible beginning.
To check the stall numbers of the participants in any racing contest, the race-cards on the day or the bookie screens in shop or on course often display the number in brackets, to not confuse it with the number of the horse.
If you are unsure with your bet, you usually cannot go wrong with a horse filling stall's one two or three.
