The countdown continues to what was formerly the end to the turf Flat season with the November Handicap at Doncaster on Saturday as Nottingham flies the flag alone to start the day.

Dual-purpose tracks Musselburgh and Chepstow follow with the jumps action before the racing ends on the all-weather with evening meetings at Newcastle, Chelmsford and Dundalk.

Nottingham claims bragging class rights with the feature sprint that is the Lady Cecil Handicap and Newmarket trainer Rae Guest could make the day's headlines by winning the race honouring his sister with his veteran Mirza.
