How Betalchemist Works

Clients who subscribe to BetAlchemist as full members can expect the service to work in the following way:


Selections are not given everyday...  we have selections when there is competitive racing which is normally Fri-Sun. Selections are advised on both Irish and UK racing and on a busy weekend you can expect  4 - 6 selections.

At the big meetings like the Cheltenham Festival we will have selections in most races on each day of the Festival. We also advise antepost selections for all the top races.

Selections are posted in the Members Area on our website. We always email to let you know new selections have been posted. The email will contain a link to the selections post, you just need to click through and login.

Selections can be posted both on the night before, and on the morning of racing. If this is the case you will receive two emails.


Before selections are sent out we identify which bookies are offering the best odds. We also identify which bookies are offering the best place concessions.

Staking advice is given with all selections... the majority of selections are advised either as 1 point win bets or ½ point each way.

If you are betting to £10 a point, this means that you stake either £10 win or £5 each way and we recommend putting aside a betting bank of 100 points.

Given the vast number of online bookmakers now operating and the big disparity in odds that may be available on a selection we advise you to open as many accounts as you can. There are many generous incentives to open a new account,  you will be able to get the best odds advised, and you can spread your bets around minimising the chance of having your bets restricted as a result of consistently winning!


Every Saturday on a weekly basis, we will email you with our free big Saturday race preview plus free tips. This feature column has the aim to showcase the depth of analysis Nicky applies to races along with how we approach each race from a value betting perspective.

You can join the Free Tips email list at Free Tips - BetAlchemist



Big Saturday Race column take a look at the big handicap race of the day each Saturday. These races are the big handicaps with 16+ runners where we usually advise two selections and bets against the field. This preview is posted every Saturday morning around 9am with a reminder email sent at that time.
