    Another sugar puffs down the wall moment whilst scanning the Racing Post this morning.

    Edward Gillespie announces that the Festival will have a "Ladies Day" a la Aintree and Ascot, but isn’t game enough to declare which day it will be. No offers Thursday Edward I would suggest!

    This man and his cohorts seem hell bent on turning the Festival into one giant p**s

    -up, is there no one that can stop him?

    Ladies Day at Cheltenham!!!!

    I can see the point at Ascot, lots of top toff totty wheeling around in glorious fashions in the summer sunshine.

    But Cheltenham. Henrietta Knight sporting a Barbour mini skirt in the peeing rain perhaps?

    That is disgusting. He’s turning it into another Royal Ascot. Be interesting to see how many women actually turn up. I don’t remember seeing a single one there this year.

    Mortisha – Those tarts will be well practised, having attended at Chester every year.

    No one will ever turn the turgid slowboats big week out into anything vaguely resembling the spectacle that is Royal Ascot ;)

    How long before you are cheering in the advent of the first ever AW Festival of Racing, one wonders?

    <br>Jackane!

    Not even a stable lass or trainer :o

    I dislike ladies days at racing generally but its not the end of the world

    Im coming round to the view that the 4 days is too diluted though. The sheer intensity of the three days was hard to match

    Hihihihihihi. Not sure "Glorious Great Leighs" has too nifty a ring to it, Corm, but we’ll all get used to it soon enough…..

    What’s this "Cheltenham-isn’t-for-women" crap?

    It’s probably true that there are more men at Cheltenham than women – more men are into racing –  but if I and other women who love racing want to go to Chelters then we will!

    As for Ladies’ Day – I don’t think there needs to be one at Cheltenham…for a start I can imagine it’s usually far too cold and/or windy to be wearing fancy frocks and fine hats. Secondly most days of that theme are money making opportunities which fill racecourses up with a load of drunk hapless women who know next to nothing about racing.

    Still, I’ll be watching Cheltenham on TV. Far more comfortable and warm :)

    Speaking as a woman who has been to Cheltenham, I think it’s a bloody stupid idea.

    I also think Omerta should shut up and try to cultivate a brain cell or two before being allowed to post again :biggrin:

    There’s nothing wrong with ladies day at Aintree.  A top day of amazingly dressed women, the only thing I could criticise them on is the abundance of fake tan.

    Can you imagine getting across that ploughed field of a car park in three inch heels?<br>Not fun.  It was hard enough getting my Pirelli 185s through it, last time I attended LOL
