The November Handicap meeting officially marks the end of the flat season, with the mile-and-a-half feature regularly attracting large fields. It dates back to 1876 when it was the Manchester November Handicap, and it has moved home several times before becoming part of the Doncaster calendar in 1964. It has proved successful for trainer John Gosden, who has six winners including three in the last 11 renewals.
