On Wednesday the town’s race course held its annual ladies night meeting, which saw hundreds of women enjoy the sun as they cheered on horses and enjoyed a DJ set by former Spice Girl Melanie C.

Women proudly showed off their fascinators and colourful hats and dresses as they counted their winnings or consoled themselves after losing a bet.
