Pinsent Masons Handicap Hurdle disappointment Tomorrow Mystery bids to get back into the winners’ enclosure at Worcester on Sunday afternoon.
Paul Nicholls’s mare won at Kempton in a National Hunt Flat Race on her only previous start in 2021 back in February but was unable to land a significant blow in what has turned out to be a hot renewal of the Friday finale at the Grand National Festival.
She has been dropped 2lb by the handicapper since and is one of three rides on the afternoon for Harry Cobden, who returned to the saddle at Newton Abbot and Worcester earlier this month, respectively, for the first time since the injury he sustained at Liverpool in April.
Speaking on his comeback, Cobden told the Racing Post: “I’m excited to be back.
“Last year was fantastic and it was a shame the season ended the way it did, but I’ve had a nice break and I’m really looking forward to doing what I know best again.”
