He was unique..an overused word but it applies to him. Nice picture Les.
Les Auld: Certainly one of racing's characters Bill, thanks for the comment.

It's a jolly good picture.

Bill's right, he was unique, not to sure this bust does him justice to be honest, although it's good to see the tribute.
Les Auld: The finish does look a bit rough Ellie, perhaps the modern style. Thanks Ellie.

Oh my goodness! That gave me a terrible scare; I at first thought he was as big as the building until I realised your skillful positioning had made it appear this way!
Les Auld: It's all in the mind Alan, pure luck on my part, thanks for the comment.
Going by this and your Saturday picture they have obviously been building a lot at Aintree. Good capture.
Les Auld: Quite a bit of investment in the past few years Brian, thanks for the comment.
