Cotswold Racing hasn't managed to make a profit in the second month of my trial, but it was just £26.85 lost, so very little harm done.
If bets had been placed at bookies offering BOG there would have been a profit for the month, thanks to a drifter going from 7/1 to 20/1.
Between that and some other smaller drifts in prices, it turned out to be a fabulous month for the BSP results.
The profit at BSP was an astonishing £400.90 to £10 stakes, boosting the bank up to a 25.6% growth for the trial so far.

Perhaps this may be a service that works better at BSP, or will those early advertised prices from the tipster be where the value lies?
I will be back in October with my next report.
Update One: 11th August 2021
The first month of my Cotswold Racing trial hasn't gone as well as I'd hoped for, losing £111.00 at the advised prices to £10 stakes.
The BSP results were better but still finished with £17.43 lost for the month.
There have been a couple of aspects to the service that have been a little off-putting, such as the tipster showing signs of frustration and also betting just for the sake of it.
For example, Tuesday 13th July - "I stupidly forced a bet yesterday with Mascat having enough question marks next to his name over a new surface in a race that looks like it would be paceless. Sadly those concerns were realised and Mascat could only finish a running on 5th."
Things like this don't exactly fill you with confidence when following a tipster.

Hopefully the tipster is feeling refreshed after his recent holiday and results improve over the next month. I will be back with my next report in September.
Introduction: 6th July 2021
Cotswold Racing has been on my radar for a while now and after studying their results and seeing profits gradually build up, I am excited to get a trial started.
In their initial proofing at Tipsters Empire, they proved to be professional with plenty of research going in to bets. They use a sensible staking plan with a combination of each-way and win bets.
The results spreadsheet goes back to 31st January 2020 and since then, the profit has grown to a total of £1,810.05 based on £10 per point stakes.
The tipster grew up in the Cotswolds near Cheltenham and fell in love with jumps racing, but he also enjoys analysing flat races so the service covers both.
He uses an approach that involves a lot of research into races, using a selection of databases and sources. Each bet he sends out includes his reasoning for choosing it.
Statistics for Cotswold Racing:
- 28.87% Win Rate
- 14.24% ROI
- 181% Bank Growth
- 10/1 Average Odds
Tips for the service are sent out every morning, with an email sent when it is a "no bet" day too.
I am going to be tracking my own results for the next few months, at the advised prices, available prices and also BSP.
There is something special about tipsters that really devote time to researching their bets, so I have high hopes for this service.
I will be back next month with my first report, which fingers crossed, will see my trial off to a flying start!
