Finding that tipfer the toff.

The big day started at 6am when the girls were whisked by coach to Ascot.

When they arrived at the plush hotel for their make-over there were hundreds of outfits - and even more hats - for that thorough-bred look.

As Susan Saville, 38, from the personnel department, admired herself in a broad-brimmed black hat, trimmed with rose-buds, she worried she might look "over the top".

"The only time I've ever worn a hat is for a wedding," she said.

Finally she plumped for a fashionable chestnut-coloured number complete with exotic feather trim.

As she got used to her new look, Susan joked: "If I don't get a glance from a Prince in this one, I'll be very disappointed."

By noon their chauffeur-driven limousine was waiting. They put the final touches to their outfit - and headed off to the races.
