Big hats and big bets! The glamour of Royal Ascot's Ladies Day

After two days of sweltering weather at Royal Ascot - temperatures were much more comfortable today for Ladies Day. Today has been as much about looking fabulous as having a flutter. And the ladies didn't disappoint in the fashion stakes. And as Cary Johnston reports the hats on show certainly turned a few heads.

Final preparations for Ladies Day at Newbury

Racehourse trainers will be competing against the best in the world, at Newbury racecourse tomorrow.

The traditional Ladies Day event will see around thirteen thousand people descend on the Berkshire town, for a flat-racing programme, which is popular both on and off the track.

ITV Meridian spoke to Andy Clifton from Newbury Racecourse.

And as well as being a festival of fashion, The Queens horse Estimate was also running in the Gold Cup.

Last year, her Majesty's horse won the race, but it wasn't the case today. Instead it was the turn of the favourite, Leading Light, to shine.

But it wasn't all about the racing. For many of the 40,000 people who attended today, its also about getting dressed up!

Cary Johnston is there for us.
