November Handicap Trends

Staged at Doncaster racecourse the November Handicap is run over a distance of 1m4f, and, as the race title suggests, is run every November. The event is always run on the last day of Britain’s flat turf racing season – this year run on Saturday 6th November 2021

Being first run in 1876 the contest was staged in the early days at Manchester and Pontefract racecourses - it was then transferred to Doncaster in 1964.

The race is always a very competitive betting heat, and one the bookmakers have loved in recent years with the favourites having a very poor recent record.

In terms of stables to note - Trainer John Gosden has been the man to follow – he’s landed the prize six times since 1991 and most recently in 2018 as the race was abandoned in 2019 due to a waterlogged track but returned 12 months ago when the Alan King-trained On To Victory won the race.

Looking at the recent stats horses drawn in stall 9 or higher have a great recent record but be wary of the market leaders – we’ve only had two winning favourites since 1995!

Here at GeeGeez, we take a look at recent winners of the November Handicap, plus highlights some key trends and stats based to apply to the 2021 running - Sat 6th November.
