Some guests opted for all-yellow ensembles while others chose a more understated polka dot sleeveless dress.

As always, an eclectic range of headwear was on show with many women enjoyed the sunny conditions after a spell of cold and wet weather earlier at the festival.

But the day was marred by tragedy this afternoon as Tiger Roll’s competitor Up For Review had to be put down after a fall at the very first hurdle.

The horse, ridden by Danny Mullins, was the first to be killed in the 5.15pm steeplechase since the deaths of Synchronised and According to Pete in 2012.

 It is believed Up From Review suffered a broken leg – which is a common injury in racing – after footage showed the stallion’s back leg at full stretch as it fell.

Crowds of excited racegoers gasp from the grandstand as the competing horses rushed to the first of thirty jumps on Saturday

All eyes were on this afternoon’s race, at Aintree Racecourse in Merseyside, which kicked off at 5.15pm and saw Tiger Roll and Davy Russell take their place in history to win the world’s greatest steeplechase for the second time.

According to racecourse bosses, there’s no strict dress code for the festival unlike Royal Ascot.

But that didn’t stop attendees from making a real effort with their outfits, with their bright colours competing for attention.
