Snobbery, elitism and military processions can only mean one thing – you’ve pitched up at Royal Ascot for the best five days of Flat racing in the world.
In preparation for the big event, we rented out top hats, penguin tails, a shirt and bow tie. Then, dressed from the waist up, we sat down to to rustle up all the vital information that you’ll ever need for Ascot. Well, about as vital as learning poetry for your English exam. ‘Cause you’ll need that in your job’ they said – and how right they were!

You know it’s going to be posh when there’s nearly as many champagne bottles as there are pints of beer sold. Proper champagne, none of that fizzy wine.
The queen will be looking for her 23rd winner, babies will be snacking on cavier while the rest of us peasants will be at work. The closest we’ll get to being that posh is when we’re watching the races, shouting at our phones while sitting on the throne.
