The world-class two day Dubai Future Champions Festival returns on Friday, 13th October with Autumn Ladies Day, seeing the ladies dressing to impress to win thousands of pounds’ worth of prizes.

The ‘Style Awards’ is sponsored by The Spa at Bedford Lodge Hotel and has thousands of pounds’ worth of prizes up for grabs for the lucky lady crowned Best Dressed, and those who are highly ranked beside her.

Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc. She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine. If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse...!!)
