History of the November Handicap
The event was originally held at the New Barns, Manchester, where it was called the Manchester November Handicap. It was established in 1876, and was initially run over 1 mile and 4 furlongs before contested over 1 mile and 6 furlongs in 1880. It was cut to its present length in 1902 when the race was re-located to the Castle Irwell course.
The race was staged at Pontefract from 1942 to 1945. It returned to Manchester in 1946, and continued there until the venue closed in 1963.
The event was transferred to Doncaster in 1964, and from this point it was known as the Manchester Handicap. For a period it took place in October, on the same day as the Observer Gold Cup. It was rescheduled for November and given its current title in 1976.
The November Handicap is now run on the last day of Britains turf flat racing season.
