There was nothing flat about the racing in Great Yarmouth on Ladies Day with stand-out fashion choices stealing the show and making off with prizes of their own.

Although a chill in the air hinted at Autumn, outfits were still decidedly summery with floral fabrics bursting out all over, and a crop of bold black and white prints.

Feathery fascinators, very much a race day staple, were still in evidence with many of the guests going one better with wide-brimmed creations that turned heads.

And there was more at stake than the approval of their peers with vouchers being handed out for best-dressed in a competition staged by Intu Chapelfield looking for ladies "who are dressed impeccably, but with an exciting, unique edge."

Glenn Tubby, Yarmouth Racecourse executive director, said perfect weather had been matched by quality racing over the three day Eastern Festival, the highlight of the racing calendar.

The meeting was likely to draw some 15,000 people over the three days and saw the highest value race of the year worth £50,000.

"I have been here a long time and seen some very wet festivals so I am just enjoying it while the sun shines," he added.
