Dress code on hot days

Going to the meeting this Friday, I am in the Edward VII enclosure. my question is anybody know if a jacket is strictly required?

Forecast is it`s going to be very hot, but the dress code does appear to be rather stringent.

Looks like it. Wear a linen jacket/suit and a short sleeved shirt underneath.

Given its Ascot, I suspect they would get snooty with somebody not strictly following the dress code.

You may be interested in this from last year:


It's going to be even hotter this year, so one would expect that similar common sense will be applied on the day (if appropriate). There is however a distinct difference between allowing jackets to be removed after entry and allowing entry to people not having a jacket at all. Note also that the requirement for gentlemen to wear socks (across all enclosures) has been added to the dress code this year.
