Chester Races Ladies' Day is always dominated by eye-catching outfits no matter what the weather. But the sun which greeted the start of the May Festival at Chester Racecourse yesterday has returned this morning so we can expect visitors to the historic course to pull out all the stops to turn heads and make an impact. The feature race of the day is the MBNA Chester Vase at 3.35pm. We will be providing live updates with pictures throughout the afternoon.
That’s it for another Ladies’ Day. Thank you for following our updates from the Roodee throughout the afternoon. Don’t forget you can check out our galleries of pictures from a memorable day at the races by visiting the Chester Chronicle website
