Ladies' Day at The Grand National

Most stylish Racegoer wins £5,000 and a Caribbean holiday

Published on March 18th 2011.

Ladies' Day at The Grand National

The Grand National at Aintree Racecourse is coming up in April – and as every fashion-conscious person knows, it's as much about the clothes as it is about the steeple chase.

On Ladies' Day (Friday 8 April) one well-dressed lady or man will come away with the title of Most Stylish Racegoer in the Matalan Style Contest.

The winner will receive £5,000 in cash, an Almond Resorts Saint Lucia holiday for two, a £500 shopping spree in Matalan, A £500 Totepool bet, £500 worth of Benefit treats – and the opportunity to feature in a Matalan photoshoot.

If you want to take part, dress for the occasion and take to the catwalk in the Matalan Style Enclosure where a panel of fashion experts will select the Racegoer who shows the most sartorial flair.

Last year's winner, Sophie Fairclough, has shared some tips on race-day style on the Matalan blog (click here).

She writes, 'Firstly, make sure you dress for your figure. When I’m buying an outfit I think if it flatters your shape and it fits right, it will make you feel so confident, and ultimately make you stand out.

'Secondly I would say, don’t dress as though you’re going on a night out. It’s a formal and classy occasion so make sure your outfit is appropriate. Plus, it’s an excuse to dress up and wear something different to a usual night out.

'Lastly, have fun with it – especially as hopefully the sun will be out. It’s a bit of fun with the girls, so why not just enter and see what happens?'

The contest will be open to enter from 11.30am until 2pm on Ladies’ Day. If you get to the Matalan Style Enclosure between 10am and 1pm, you can get your hands on a free Matalan goody bag filled with essential raceday items, and enjoy a free cupcake with every purchase of pink fizz.

Before then make sure you pre-register for the Style Contest – you'll then be entered into a prize draw to win a VIP night out at the John Smith’s Grand National Winners Party at Alma de Cuba on Saturday 9 April, plus £500 worth of Benefit goodies and a £250 Matalan voucher.

Tickets for Ladies' Day, Friday 8 April, at the Grand National festival cost £32. To pre-register for the Style Contest and buy your Ladies' Day tickets, please click here.
