Check out the fab video by Ray McManus of Sportsfile which captures the fun and excitment of Ladies Day.

While 20,000 people would be a throng for a Ladies Day at any racecourse in Europe, in Ballybrit it’s just another day. In the West, Thursday means crowds in excess of 34,000. It’s just how they do things up in this part of the world.

Luckily, the biblical downpours of last year were replaced with glorious sunshine for the biggest day of the festival. As always, the horseracing takes somewhat of a backseat on Thursday, with women vastly outnumbering men in the hope of being picked out of the masses for Best- Dressed Lady.

Helen Murphy from Douglas in Cork took the top prize in the end. The secondary school teacher wore a mint-green midi skirt and white top from Coast, which was accessorised with an Aisling Maher multi- coloured pearl necklace and a white disc hat embellished with brooches from Dunnes Stores. She also wore a 1950s vintage Walborg clutch and shoes from Nine West.
