Ben Linfoot's Value Bet column got the Flat turf season off to a tremendous start with 40/1 Lincoln winner Levitate at Doncaster.

The column has come up with a number of big-priced winners since its inception and Ben's judgement once again came to the fore as he picked out the five-year-old on debut for trainer John Quinn.

He said: "This son of Pivotal is typical of his sire's stock in that he goes very well on soft ground and he also likes it on Town Moor too after a second on the straight course and a win on the round course on his last two starts at the track.

"If the switch in stables brings about any improvement at all he must go close, I liked the way he finished both of his last two races at Doncaster and the 40/1 looks worth taking."

That advice proved absolutely spot-on again for followers of the Bettingzone and highlights just how important it is to stay logged on for all the best racing and sports tipping around - which remains totally FREE.

Ben will be back next week with previews for all three days of Aintree, with his selections for the Grand National going out on Friday evening.
