Cotswold Racing Review

Cotswold Racing Review

The third month of my Cotswold Racing trial has been an absolute belter! The service made £355.38 profit to £10 stakes at the available prices.

For the three month trial overall, I finished up with £217.53 profit, so my starting bank of £1,500 had grown by just over a fifth.

But take a look at this!

At BSP (Betfair SP), the service made £857.98 profit with a 27.2% return on investment.

Betting at bookmakers with Best Odds Guaranteed would have given a huge boost to my profit but I don't include that in my results, as not everyone is eligible for it.

At first I had been a little dubious about this tipster as he had shown signs of becoming frustrated with losing runs. However, I stuck with him and he managed to turn things around without, well, losing the plot!

He had an excellent October and he is approximately up by 200 points for the year.

The detailed write-ups he gives in his tipping emails show how much work he puts into the service and his efforts appear to be paying off nicely.

Cotswold Racing gets a pass from me!

Update Two: 11th September 2021

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!

  1. For all the plaudits this guy receives from some quarters, I'm far from impressed with his efforts. I've been subscribed since early 2022 and am in minus, excluding subscription payments. Something which I really dislike about this service is the guy's habit of trying to sugar coat losses, e.g. today he said long-term members have a "huge bankroll" as a way of deflecting attention from the poor results over the past few days.

    Leaving aside the issue of variance, which of course has to be examined over a considerably longer period of time than a few days, what about those who haven't been members for the past couple of years and haven't the enormous bankroll he referred to? On other occasions where there have been losses with recommended bets, he'll refer to horses he's mentioned in passing which have won, saying I'm sure most of you made a few good quid from that horse I mentioned yesterday.

    Well, no. Either it's a recommended bet or it's not and I'm sure he doesn't mention those 'unofficial bet' horses which lose. These sort of comments shouldn't be included in emails to members as the service should stand or fall on official bets, with no flannel to distract attention from the bets he recommends which lose.

    When a losing run is interrupted by a couple of winners from four or five single bets, the next day he'll say loads of you will no doubt have made plenty from doubles. Again, no. Single bets were stated so that's what should be placed, or least referred to when looking at the results on any given day. Mentioning doubles just looks to me a way of trying to mitigate the losing runs from his recommended single bets. He does include the odd multiple in his emails but these are clearly stated as such and a service which basically advises single win or each-way bets shouldn't be relying on 'unofficial' multiple bets to enhance the look of results.

    The guy behind Cotswold seems to put a lot or work into finding his selections but he really must stop referring to doubles and horses which only merit a casual mention as a diversion from his numerous losers. It remains to be seen if this service can produce a massive bankroll for those unfortunate not to have been a member for the past two years.

    1. Looking at results, if you had been a member from the beginning of 2022 you would have made £1,213.46 profit to £10 stakes, or £1,683.51 at Betfair SP. Take away the membership cost, you would still have plenty of profit. I can’t see how you could be in minus?
