Tom Segal, aka Pricewise

Love him or loathe him you cannot avoid Tom Segal, aka Pricewise of the Racing Post.

I respect the man. I respect anyone who spends the time he does studying form and watching racing. I know, because I do so myself.

He doesn’t big himself up. His employers do that. And John McCririck used to do likewise.

Like all punters/tipsters Pricewise has winners and losers. That goes with the territory. But he puts the work in. I think some punters have no idea how much work goes into studying race form these days. So much racing and so many possibilities to consider.

Some days Tom looks like death warmed up. That is because he spends too much time in a cupboard size office looking at tapes of past races. At least I have more colour, but that is because many years of profitable punting allowed me to spend much of the year under blue skies (although, like Tom, I see them too rarely). We are dedicated to this work.

Someone more experienced than I, my friend Jim McGrath, studied form for many years when he ran Timeform. He assures me that one day, sooner or later, the men in white coats will be calling, and carrying me away.

Maybe Pricewise and I can share a padded cell and talk about our most profitable punts!

When I have heard Tom Segal interviewed he has similar views to me when it comes to general opinions on punting, including, if you don’t enjoy it, don’t do it. Do something else.

Often I oppose his selections. Some days he wins. Other times I win and his tip comes nowhere.

But I respect his opinions and knowledge.

Here he talks about some of the Irish horses due to appear at the Cheltenham Festival this March
