Irish trainer Ronan McNally claims he began to feel 'like a criminal' as stewards interviewed him over riding instructions and the vastly-improved form of his Southwell winner The Jam Man.

The six-year-old was backed from prices as big as 20-1 overnight into 9-4 favourite, and duly rewarded his backers by putting a string of well-beaten, unplaced efforts behind him with a seven-length victory in the Jigsaw Sports Branding Novices' Handicap Chase.

McNally, who owns as well as trains the gelding, has sent six winners out at British tracks from his Northern Ireland base in Armagh over the past five years.
