Ladies Day

Today its Ladies Day at The Cheltenham Festival and if you are lucky enough to be going there is the added bonus of seeing extra races. Yesterdays racing was cancelled due to the strong winds and the postponed races are being held today and tomorrow. This is the second Ladies Day held at Cheltenham Racecourse with awards given to the ladies with the best outfit, best hat and best accessories. An award is also given to the lady who has given an Outstanding Contribution To Jump Racing. Last years prize was given to Heather Atkinson who has been the Senior Nurse at the Jockey's Hospital at Cheltenham Racecourse for more than 30 years. The photo shows the window display of Marks & Spencer on the High Street. Even the big chain stores get in on the act during race week.

Now time for Marley's Daily Top Tip. Today I'll give you two tips! You lucky things!

Yesterdays tip - Master Minded in the Queen Mother Champion Chase now at 2.20pm today and - Don't Push It in the Racing Post Plate at 4.05pm.

Now, I know I'm not having much luck with this giving tips business (what with stopping horses and high winds) but I've got a good feeling today. Fingers crossed!

I hope it isn't too windy for the ladies, otherwise they will be spending all day holding their dresses down. As one who has never been inside a betting shop, I wouldn't know if these are good tips or not. Have you put a few quid on them Marley?

I bet the ladies are all decked out in their best hats and outfits at the races. I'd love to see that!

I think Don't Push It was doing so well but fell in the end? Shame. So what's your tip for tomorrow, then, Marley - Gold Cup Day! Ooooh exciting isn't it.

I always think you have to be posh to go to the races, but if I'm honest I'd have a blast getting dressed up just the once :)
