The Independent Online
Canon Can, the Doncaster Cup winner, headed the 55 acceptors at yesterday's forfeit stage for the Cesarewitch Handicap, to be run over two miles and two furlongs at Newmarket on Saturday, 18 October.

Despite a 4lb penalty for his Doncaster success, raising his weight to 10st, Henry Cecil's four-year-old, third in last year's event, is the 12-1 co-favourite with the Tote.

Also on 12-1 are John Gosden's progressive gelding Media Star, runner- up in the Ebor Handicap, and Sausalito Bay, Ian Balding's improving three- year-old. Inchcailloch, last year's winner Shaft Of Light, Top Cees and Mawared have accepted but Old Red, the 1995 Cesarewitch winner, is out.
