The 44-year-old actor got carried away, cheering and exclaiming in amazement as his horse sped ahead of the pack.

Damian looked like he couldn’t believe his luck as he watched the action unfurl from the VIP box.

Also joining the actor was his beautiful wife Helen McCrory, who seemed just as enthusiastic about their big day out.

The dark comedy by Daniel Evans tells the story of three small-time crooks plotting to steal a valuable coin collection.

Despite the facial hair, Damian cut a stylish figure at the annual sporting event by rocking a tailored three-piece suit with a black silk top hat and a crisp white shirt all by British menswear label Oliver Brown.  Eagle eye: Damian was keeping one eye on the horses as he chatted to his wife.
