Horse Racing Tipster: One on one with Ben Beare

Tagged: Ben Beare

Trial specialist Beare's all

Ben Beare is beginning to stake his claim as one of Australia's hottest professional punters.

The Victorian has made no less than $8,150 in cash profit from $100 win bets placed on each of his selections over the last 30 days alone.

Over this period, Beare's Profit on Turnover (POT) is sitting pretty at 20%. That's 20 cents of profit for every dollar wagered. Not bad at all.

So how does he do it?

We caught up with Beare to pick his brain on not just his punting strategies, but also how he got into form analysis and his best advice for all the punters out there.

Ben Beare Tips

Beare's impressive 30 day tipping stats


We kicked things off by asking how Beare first got into horse racing.

Like many of us, he got into the sport of kings at a young age. Beare's pop and next door neighbour would place $2 quinellas, which always seemed to include No.2 in Race 2 in Melbourne. 


We asked Ben how he managed to got involved in the industry and learned that he was destined to work in racing.

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

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


We probed Ben about the approach and method he uses to analyse form and learned that there is a mountain of work and pure talent behind his results.

His particular talent is watching trials and jump-outs. But he's not just watching to see where the horses finish.

Instead, he closely monitors the run and mannerisms of each horse.

Some of the key factors he takes into consideration include:

  • how the horse responds when urged to go forward by the jockey;
  • whether the horse had to work hard in the run; and
  • how well the horse pings out of the gates.

However, his closest focus comes at a time when most analysts would switch off. Beare places significant importance on how a horse reacts after crossing the line.

While some horses are full of running and will be ready for their first-up run, others look as though they could do with a few more trials.

Of course, this isn't like tipping a horse because you like the jockey or trainer. This requires hard work and dedication.

Beare spends two hours each day doing this kind of video analysis, on top of the two hours he spends analysing the form on paper.

Ben Beare Tips

The trial specialist spends up to 4 hours per day analysing video and form


We asked whether Beare prefers betting at any particular tracks and if he thinks certain courses have a particular bias.

Beare doesn't have a strong preferences for any particular track however he limits his work to Victorian and NSW tracks, as he knows them best.

Regarding bias, Beare agrees that certain tracks can have particular biases. That's why he's a fan of Kembla Grange.

The long 420-metre straight tends to give every horse a fair chance to win.


Finally, Beare was asked what his best advice would be to all the fledgling (or veteran) punters out there.

"Find your niche and then find your edge" he replied. 

Of course, this is exactly what Beare does.

His trial and jump-out form analysis has certainly stood him in good stead.
