The Jam Man Lands Serious Gamble At Southwell

At Southwell over the jumps on Monday a huge gamble was landed in the second race of the day when Irish raider The Jam Man bolted up to land the Class 4 Handicap Chase.

What was so intriguing about this horse is he opened up at 18/1 before the race but just before the off went off at 9/4 and went on to hack up for connections.

This does not happen much in racing especially for an ordinary jumps meeting on a Monday at Southwell but the market obviously told, when the Jam Man romped home.

After the race winning trainer Ronan M P McNally was interviewed by Sky Sports Racing about many different issues as the trainer was bought into the stewards room on numerous occasions after his horse had won.

There were many factors and suspicious behaviour around this horse winning but it was all explained by the Irish trainer who truly was less than impressed with the way he had been treated after his horse had won.

The movement in the market from 18/1 to 9/4 is unheard of really with obviously a lot of big bets and punters piling in at a big price and it being dramatically shortened throughout the day.

McNally explained his answer to the stewards when they asked why this horse had given such a different performance to that of his previous 11 where he had not won and placed only twice.

He said that his horse had never won in Ireland during his whole career and had give his best performances over in England, especially at Southwell where he had won before.

The stewards asked about what tactics he had told leading jockey Aidan Coleman to use but the trainer just said that told Coleman to ride him to win, he expressed that the jockey is one of the best in the game and should not have to be told how to win the race.

The jockey was given videos to watch on how to ride him in preparation and from there could grasp the style he needed.

When things like this happen in racing they have to be discussed and although suspicious McNally's horse has won fair and square.

Enjoy the video below of his whole interview of what happened after The Jam man bolted up.
