Here come the girls! Ladies whip up a storm in JAW DROPPING outfits at Cheltenham

Stunning spectators are turning out in force in the face of Storm Gareth on Day Two of the jump racing fest.

Heavy rain and strong winds had threatened to postpone the popular Ladies Day as 50mph gusts were forecast.

But a last minute inspection at 6am this morning put the show back on the road as the gates were reopened.

Bad weather could be seen whipping up a nightmare for the ladies as they arrived, with many pictured this morning holding onto their hats.
