Here is my guide to cutting your race-day costs…

  1. Outfits: Head to very.co.uk where an array of occasionwear is on sale, for men, women and kids, for all shapes and sizes. Get a timeless Karen Millen dress for £68, down from £170, or a men’s slim-fit blazer for £25, down from £50. Saving: Up to £102 at very.co.uk.
  2. Eating: Some courses don’t let you bring your own food and drink, while others have designated picnic areas. Check the rules. You could snack in the car or make a pit-stop on your way home instead. Frankie & Benny’s currently has 33 per cent off main dishes. Before leaving home, check what offers are on near you.
  3. Fascinating stuff: If you want a stylish fascinator, Asos has great options for £10, while similar ones at Marks & Spencer cost £29.50. Or add a floral hair clip to a plain alice band for an instant fix. Claire’s has clips that would work for around £4.50 — a big saving on buying a whole new fascinator. Headpieces can cost a lot, so also consider pitching in with a couple of mates and buy one to share around for weddings, races and big summer events. There are also some great DIY creations on Pinterest but I have not yet resorted to pinning a shower puff on my head. Saving: £19.50.

Reader's saving tip

JOHN Stacey from Henley-on-Thames, Oxon, says: “If you’re growing geraniums this summer, start saving used tea bags.

“Dry them out then sprinkle the contents around the base of the plant and water. It works as cheap plant food.”

RACING, MUSIC AND FOOD

Our suggestion for soaking up the full racing experience is to pick your horse at the parade ring, have a flutter in the ­betting ring then head to the winning post to watch your horse come in.

Plus you can bring your children along too, as under-18s go free to most events when accompanied by an adult. Check thejockeyclub.co.uk to see if your chosen event is included.
