Many toned their looks down with muted accessories, including nude bags and silver heels. 

The three-day meet, a highlight of the racing calendar, gives glamorous fans an excuse to get dressed up in their finery for a day of action.

Of course, no racing festival would be the same without a selection of elaborate millinery and there were plenty of eye-catching choices on display. 

While some opted for subtle fascinators and headbands, others went all out in creations festooned with feathers and colourful bows.

Short, figure-hugging dresses were among the popular choices today, while one reveller opted for a cream number with a daring V-neck and sheer detailing.

Clad in eye-catching head pieces, sky high heels, daring hemlines and frilly dresses, well-dressed women looked delighted to be at today’s event.
