Ladies Day at Aintree may be about the dresses and the antics, but at Epsom it was all about the hats.

The bigger the better, the weirder the more wonderful. Anything goes, from tulle to taxidermy.

And the fascinators? They were there, of course, but nowhere near so fascinating.

There were two Group 1 races on Ladies Day, which is held on the first day of the Epsom Derby festival at the Surrey racecourse.

Saxon Warrior is the odds-on favourite to win the Derby on Saturday.
