At Leicester’s meeting on 9 May, it was a massive advantage to be drawn low on the straight course. The 7f Rothwell Handicap won by Private Mission was a prime example, with the Racing Post reporting that “The main action unfolded middle to far side, with the four horses who raced closest to the stands' side for most of the way filling the last four places.” The runners that showed up well from their low draws in that race have disappointed since – winner Private Mission was eighth of 11 (11-2) at Haydock on Saturday, third home Il Sicario was only fifth (7-2f) at Carlisle next time and fourth-placed Abiento was only fourth (5-1) from another good draw at Nottingham last week.
