Profile: Ben, sportinglife.com's racing correspondent, has been part of the team since 2005 and has written his Value Bet column since 2010. 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. Ben also keeps a close eye on top-flight football and contributes occasionally with football tips in the top competitions.
