Work, love and life are just one long, hard slog for the fish-filleting foursome from Arbroath Pearl, Jan, Shelley and Linda. But their fortunes are set to change when Linda finds tickets to Ladies’ Day at Royal Ascot the year it relocates to Perth. Out go the hairnets, overalls and wellies as they do themselves up to the nines and head off to the races. Glamour girl Shelley is interested in meeting a handsome, and preferably rich, famous man. Linda, on the other hand, is skint after letting her duplicitous mother back into her life. Pearl spills the beans on her illicit love life to devoted single mother, Jan, who is concerned for her academically ambitious daughter. Secrets are spilled with the champagne and friendships are tested to the limit. As the day unfolds and tempers fray, their accumulator bet keeps quietly winning. If their luck and their nerve holds, the ladies could hit the jackpot – and more.
