First leads November contenders
Ante-post favourite First Mohican heads a maximum field of 23 for the Betfred November Handicap at Doncaster on Saturday.
The Henry Cecil-trained four-year-old puts his unbeaten record on the line in the feature race on the final day of the Flat turf season.
Once considered a Derby prospect after winning his only start as a juvenile in October 2010, the Tobougg gelding was then sidelined for almost two years until returning last month with wins at Redcar and Nottingham.
The weights are headed on 9st 10lb by Retrieve, one of three Godolphin-owned horses from Saeed bin Suroor's stable. Songcraft and Darley Sun complete their trio.
All the leading fancies have been declared, among them Nicholascopernicus, Blue Surf, Communicator and Kirthill.
Of the original top 23 in the handicap, only Licence To Till, Noble Alan and Cubanita were withdrawn at the final declaration stage. Their absence has allowed Party Line, Hanoverian Baron and Bollin Greta to make the field.
