Hands up who likes racing. Hands up who likes cake. We thought so!


With racing suspended for now, we’re giving you the chance to win tickets for a Jockey Club raceday of your choice when we’re back on the track in front of crowds.


All you have to do is bake your best horseracing-themed cake and post a photograph of it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, including our relevant social media handle and the hashtag #RacingCakes.


We’re a little daunted by the prospect of judging the competition for ourselves, so we’ve picked racing’s ‘King of Cake’, Jumps trainer Fergal O’Brien to pick the best.


Fergal might not be able to taste your offerings, but he certainly knows what he likes so get your pictures in as soon as you can.


The competition is open until midnight on Sunday 10th May – so what are you waiting for?
