A rainbow of colours will fill Sandown Park as women don their finest and most glamorous ensembles.

The Portsmouth Road racecourse celebrates all things fashionable and feminine as Ladies Day returns, this year US Independence Day.

From signature styles to vintage attire and chic outfits, women will come together to revel in a summer afternoon of racing.

To celebrate true girl power, the racecourse encourages women to come dressed in red, white, blue or even all three to take part in the best-dressed ladies competition.

American-born fashion entrepreneur, television presenter and socialite Noelle Reno will be this year’s judge and presenter for the competition.

The winner and runners up will be announced in the winner’s enclosure and prizes are up for grabs.
