Glorious Goodwood Ladies' Day in pictures

It was a spectacular day of style and sizzling temperatures ... and elegance and excellent sport.

A large crowd flocked to the South Downs to watch the top-class racing - which included the Magnolia Cup charity ladies' race - to socialise with friends, and to eat, drink and show off their finest outfits.

Photographer Malcolm Wells was there to capture the action, and you can see his images in the slidesohw above. Were you there? Perhaps you will see yourself in one of the pictures.

And don't forget to join us on this site on Friday for all the day-four action.
