Ben Beare

Twitter: @BensRacingTips

Ben has two passions in life, Horse Racing and AFL. He doesn’t miss a Richmond game after being sucked in at an early age by his Nan, who is a crazy Tiger supporter.

At the early age of 9, Ben took an interest in thoroughbred racing. He has fond memories of spending Saturday afternoons watching the ponies with his pop, a long-time punter himself.

His love affair with ‘the great game’ grew from there, and now most days are spent doing the form.

Ben has particular talent for identifying horses coming through jump outs & trials, spending hours each day watching New South Wales and Victorian trials.

Before he became an expert professional form analyst, he spent the good part of a decade at his local TAB.

Together with his work at Expertform, doing the data entry for video comments, the Victorian racing fan was in up to his nose.
