    Over three stories the class and quality shone through with Richard and Lillian Frank with their guest Michael, and Model/New Mum Chantelle O’Neill sampling the gourmet menu courtesy of chefs Ben Shewri and David Moyle including tacos from the renowned Mr Miyagi.

    France’s champagne house, Maison Mumm turned up the heat this year for the 7thyear running with an exclusive high-energy daytime party reminiscent of iconic beach clubs in the South of France. With the first ever swimming pool in The Birdcage fitted with the iridescent pink Mumm Rose inspired Bisazza glassmosaic tiles flown in from Europe for the G.H. Mumm Marquee there was no expense spared.

    There was also no shortage of action with a magnum of champagne arriving into Flemington via G. H. Mumm parachute and traveling to the Marquee strapped to Kate Peck on a BMW motorcycle. The magnum was then greeted by Didier Cohen and was sabred open into a champagne shower.
