History[edit]

The event was originally held at Manchester, where it was called the Manchester November Handicap. It was established in 1876, and was initially contested over 1 mile and 6 furlongs. It was cut to its present length in 1903.

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 Britain's turf flat racing season.
