Crowds have returned to Newmarket for Gentleman's Day at the races.

Last year’s festival was held behind closed doors, but this year the doors were very much open – despite being at reduced capacity.

Around 12,000 visitors are expected over the three days of the Moët & Chandon July Festival- compared to a usual 35,000. But managers hope as the season progresses more people will be allowed back in.
