There was a small profit of £7.00 to add to my bank in month four of my trial of BetAlchemist. Added to the rest of the trial profit worked out as a total of £166.50.
It is great to see that the service has not had a losing month so far in my trial, but the level of profit has been on the low side. At the moment I work it out as an average £41.63 profit per month to £10 stakes.
It feels like the tipster has had some hard luck, with quite a few bets placing and some rule 4 deductions that cut into the profit when they did get some winners.
|BetAlchemist – Update Four||Advised Prices||Price taken||Betfair SP|
|Profit (£)||£ 4.30||£ 7.00||£ 47.45|
|New Bank||£ 1,146.30||£ 1,166.50||£ 1,463.50|
|% Bank Growth||14.63%||16.65%||46.35%|
I feel that this is one of those trials that is worth carrying on, so I will extend again for another month. There aren't too many bets each week for this service, so it's not too much work for me to continue recording results.
Update Three: 10th August 2022
There has been a profit in each month of my BetAlchemist trial so far and each time it has been more than the last.
It's great to see things get slightly better each month and see regular profit coming in.
My only gripe is that it is still quite a small overall profit, adding up to £159.50 in three months using £10 per pt stakes.
I'm not complaining as such, as I would prefer to see consistent profit from a service so that I would feel more comfortable using higher stakes.
I do worry that one bad month could wipe it out though!
|BetAlchemist – Update Three||Advised Prices||Price taken||Betfair SP|
|Profit (£)||£ 80.00||£ 93.50||£ 215.95|
|New Bank||£ 1,142.00||£ 1,159.50||£ 1,416.05|
|% Bank Growth||14.20%||15.95%||41.61%|
I am going to keep my trial running to be 100% sure about the service before I make a decision on the rating. I'll be back with another update in September.
Update Two: 5th July 2022
BetAlchemist added £50.50 profit to the pot in the second month of my trial which makes it a small 6.6% bank increase in total.
The service was flying throughout most of the month, tipping plenty of wins and places. Sadly they experienced a losing streak at the end and some of the profit was handed back to the bookies.
|BetAlchemist – Update Two||Advised Prices||Price taken||Betfair SP|
|Profit (£)||£ 48.00||£ 50.50||£ 66.35|
|New Bank||£ 1,062.00||£ 1,066.00||£ 1,200.10|
|% Bank Growth||6.20%||6.60%||20.01%|
The service has shown some promising results in my trial so far but I need to see more profit to be able to give a pass rating. Right now it would be tough to cover membership fees, so a good chunk of profit next month would be great.
I will be back with another update next month.
Update One: 6th June 2022
My trial of BetAlchemist has had a promising start with some each way winners and quite a few places.
It was only just enough to finish the month in profit though, with £15.50 made at the advised prices and a return on investment of 3.23%.
The Betfair SP results were much better due to horses often drifting in price as the day went by. This added up to £133.75 profit at Betfair and a 27.86% return on investment.

|Profit (£)||£ 14.00||£ 15.50||£ 133.75|
|New Bank||£ 1,014.00||£ 1,015.50||£ 1,133.75|
|% Bank Growth||1.40%||1.55%||13.38%|
Not a bad start to my trial and I hope to see them build on this profit in the next couple of months. I will post my next update in a month's time.
Introduction: 9th May 2022
BetAlchemist has been around for donkey's years, which is usually unheard of with tipping services as they often come and go.
This is the 10th year since the service went live as a betting service, so I reckon they must be doing something right!
Their results page has a full breakdown of profit/loss for each year and altogether it adds up to 636.86 pts profit, or £6,368.60 to £10 stakes with a 12.33% return on investment.
Imagine the amount of profit if stakes had been increased as the profit built up over the years. That is the beauty of finding a service that you can rely on to follow for the long-term.
Here's a breakdown of the statistics for the service to date:
The service is run by Nicky Doyle, who has had most of his bookmaker accounts restricted and now enjoys helping his members make substantial profits.
He focuses on quality over quantity, betting on group races down to class 2 handicaps on the flat and graded races to valuable handicaps over jumps.
Bets are posted online and email at approximately 9.00am on the day of the race and 11.00am on Sundays. Most of the bets are at weekends but during festivals there are daily bets.
Nicky claims that the prices of his tips don't disappear quickly like they would on mid-week lower class racing.
I will be running my trial for at least three months to be sure of this and will post a monthly update of my results at the available prices.
