The Best Dressed finalists at Punchestown Racing Festival are falling into a pattern.

After Monday's winner Kirsty Farrell won the same award - on the same day - in 2015, Tuesday's Best Dressed Audrey Kelly (26) has also scooped the gong on the same day for the second year running.

She will now go through to Friday's fashion finale for this year's overally Best Dressed Lady prize.

The Kildare native donned a baby pink top paired with matching trousers from Aria Boutique in Naas, and revealed that dissecting Lottie’s style was key to taking home the coveted crown.

“The fact that Lottie was a judge, and she is so stylish, I knew she would be looking for something quirky,” she said.

“I follow her on social media and I keep an eye on her style, so I thought this would be something she would  like.”

Audrey played her cards right it seems, as Lottie was looking for “something different”.

Meanwhile, RTE DJ Lottie said the concept of dressing for the races was a foreign one, saying: "It was totally alien to me, because no one in my family goes to the races."

Lottie, the eldest daughter of late broadcaster Gerry Ryan, has her own breakfast weekend show with the station and also works as an entertainment reporter, but said her sister Bonnie (21), who just released her debut single last week, is "too quiet" for radio and won't be following in her footsteps with a career at Montrose.

“Bonnie doesn’t want to be on the radio,” Lottie told the Herald. “She’s not a big talker – she’s very quiet.”

“She’s doing her gigs now. It is her first step as a singer, so I am delighted for her."
