Not as tacky as Aintree sorry
Cheshire's finest fillies flocked to Chester racecourse today to celebrate Boodles Ladies Day.
The occasion traditionally sees women push the fashion boat far out as they experiment with outlandish styles - and this year's event was no different.
Fashion-focused guests dug out their best frocks to join throngs of 300,000 expected this week at the Cheshire meet.
Ladies brightened up a gloomy day with a wild range of hues, with emerald green, lilac and vivid turquoise all making an appearance.

Full length and fabulous seemed to be the unwritten dress code of the day, with most women choosing colourful maxi dresses to attend the meet.
But what would Ladies Day be without a host of revealing outfits?
Despite the floor-skimming hemlines of their dresses, many took the chance to show off their figures with revealing splits, cut-out portions or bare midriffs, giving fellow racegoers a tantalising glimpse of what lies beneath.

Thanks to the chilly wind that blew across the racecourse today though some must surely have regretted their skimpy choice of outfit.
With bare arms and legs exposed to the elements, the only dead cert at the end of the day was goosebumps.
The ladies in attendance would have seen Stonethrower, ridden by Richard Killoran, win the Congratulations Prince William and Princess Catherine Novices' hurdles race.
