Pricewise Grand National

Tom Segal tips.

16th February

Backstage 1pt Each Way @33/1

Oscar Time 1pt Win @ 25/1

Its a touch of déjà vu for Tom as he also tipped Backstage ante-post for the race last year.

Tom Segals Pricewise and Pricewise Extra tips record.

Sunday 20th of March

Tom Segal said in his Racing Post Column.

IT HAS been a pretty incredible few months for Sam Waley-Cohen to say the least. The King George, the Gold Cup, matchmaking for the royal family and I, for one, wouldn’t bet against him winning the Grand National either. The Waley-Cohens clearly have an eye for a top horse and having acquired Long Run they seem to have made an equally shrewd purchase with Aintree in mind in the shape of Oscar Time.

Of all the horses who are fancied in the run-up to this year’s great race, I haven’t seen one who jumps as well as Oscar Time. He makes lengths at his fences and has clearly been trained with one race in mind all season. Last time he appeared to not see out the trip as well as The Midnight Club in the Bobbyjo at Fairyhouse, but he stayed the Irish National trip under a big weight in dire ground and I just can’t have it that he was anywhere near peak form last time.

Martin Lynch is going to have him spot-on for Aintree and I think the Waley-Cohens have a great chance of winning the three most prestigious chases all in one season. I also think Sam’s style of riding is tailor-made for these staying chases in that he clearly gets horses jumping and he has a great record around Aintree. Those who are still in jumps mode should consider backing Oscar Time for the National because on good ground there isn’t any other horse in the race I would rather have.

  1. hello im just writeing to say thanks for the cheltenham lucky 15 post on hear, just wondering thou do you also post them for aintree and the other big meeting in the year

  2. Thanks Mike. That was the first time we have done that and it worked out well. I would like to do it for all the main meetings but there are a few problems with that. Cheltenham is fairly unique in that you have all the prices and tips for 24/25 races whereas I don’t think we will have that at Aintree.
    I was considering trying it out on a Saturday, so keep a look out for it.

  3. A great effort with the lucky 15s at Cheltenham. Will be looking forward to next year, if the site manages to stay online. Good idea from Mike, if it is possible.

  4. Cheers QC3 I am going to try the same thing on Saturday. I will be posting shortly.
