...or so the newspapers would have you believe.

But this year organisers have clamped down on media organisations taking unflattering photos on Ladies Day.

Aintree racecourse boss John Baker told the Liverpool Echo the venue wanted to protect women from "unfair" coverage.

He said any photographers taking shots which enforce negative stereotypes could have their accreditation taken away.

Ladies Day has been a fixture of the race meeting since the early 1990s.

This year the photos coming out of Aintree have been a tad more restrained.

Aintree wants to a stop photographs showing women in "unflattering" poses.

Mr Baker told the Echo: "We want to overwhelm the negativity, to push the positivity to the front.

"Our event is full of character, it's fun, and that's generated by the personality of the Liverpool people."
