Profile: Ben, sportinglife.com's racing correspondent, has been part of the team since 2005 and has written his Value Bet column for more than three years. The column is designed to generate profit in the long-term by highlighting what he deems to be overpriced horses ahead of the big races on a weekend and at the major festivals.
