The style stakes were high as feathers, frocks and fascinators filled Fakenham Racecourse on Sunday at the course’s ladies’ day event.

David Hunter, chief executive and clerk of Fakenham Racecourse, said: “It’s been absolutely packed here.

“We’ve seen the biggest number of pre-sales we’ve ever had and the numbers will be right up there with what we had on Easter Monday.

“It’s been pleasing to see a lot of new faces and casual race-goers of all ages out having a good time.

“The ladies have made a huge effort and have looked absolutely fantastic.

“We’ve been having ladies’ day events here for a few years now and they are getting more and more popular, especially on a brilliant day like today when the sun is shining as it has been.”
