Our Video of the Week, titled Style Like Nowhere Else and made and shared by Ascot Racecourse on their YouTube channel, features a 2:33 minute interview with Ellis Jones in which he comments:

 

“You can’t really do much with a top hat to ruin it. They can steal it or set fire to it but if you sit on it or run it over with a car, we can mend it in the workshop, it’s not a problem”.

 

With two days of the finest racing in the world still to go, readers heading to Berkshire would do well to heed the words of Martin Ellis Jones. He concludes: “It’s all style and no content… Take the trouble and you’ll stand out a mile”.
