We extend our recent study of winding number density statistics in Gaussian random matrix ensembles of the chiral unitary (AIII) and chiral symplectic (CII) classes. Here, we consider the chiral orthogonal (BDI) case which is the mathematically most demanding one. The key observation is that we can map the topological problem on a spectral one, rendering the toolbox of random matrix theory applicable. In particular, we employ a technique that exploits supersymmetry structures without reformulating the problem in superspace.
