  1. So basically the standard of the National has gotten a lot better and Tom can't be bothered with it anymore?

  2. Xia Pete says:

    Top trainers have dominated races for years ,so don’t understand what all the waffles about Mullins or Elliot is about.They are the best at the moment the formula one of jump racing.

    Tom is right good that he's speaking out on racing post

  4. Totally agree with Tom Segal, this jumps season been mostly disappointing. Boring to see the same trainers winning everything

    Agree with Tom on Geraghty ride though. Barry taking the brave route NOT.
    I cannot believe that professionals cannot see that his bottle has gone. I don't blame him mind, but he has definitely lost his heart a little bit.

    Tom Segal, sounding mardy and hypocritical. can't fathom who might win ? but thought it predictable that elliott and mullins dominated.
    No horses died and good jumpers fell, so it's safer and you still gotta jump round.
    Wrong on this subject Tom by a long way.
    And other trainers have good horses, but willie and Gordon are better. simple as that.
