I’ve no sure idea why that is. I’ve read through the whole of First Favourite and there are discussions in that about that somehow it seems to be the case that more favourites win. Maybe, as you say, a lot of Maidens – the first race is often a "weaker" one, and where there’s no real form, those forecasting prices ain’t doing it with a pin (I assume). If that is the case then they must have some indication of what is more likely to win, hence making it favourite in the forecast. Having just written that I’ve just had a thought – from now on I’ll check what RP shows as forecast favourite as to what actually wins/is favourite.
