THE MAD ROBERTSON has already been placed twice in bumpers but is a full brother to smart hurdler/chaser Finger on the Pulse and should come into his own now tackling a set of obstacles. He's the main reason why AP McCoy is in attendance today and makes more appeal than Tony Dinozzo, who wasn't beaten far on his hurdles bow at Folkestone but then dumped McCoy on the turf when weakening at Towcester. Swaledale Lad was a promising second at Wetherby over Christmas and, though unraced since, is entitled to respect and less exposed than Rowlestone Lad.
