Paul Carberry is set to get an interesting spare aboard Michael Scudamore's Monbeg Dude in Saturday's Coral Welsh National.

Paul Carberry: Booked to ride Monbeg Dude

Monbeg Dude is set to carry just 10st 1lb at Chepstow, meaning the young Herefordshire trainer needs to find a jockey such as Carberry who is able to manage a light weight.

Quietly supported in the betting, the gelding handled desperate conditions at Cheltenham in November when winning the Grade Three Henrietta Knight Handicap Chase.

Tessa Champion, Scudamore's partner and a work-rider at the stable, tweeted: "Paul Carberry's booked to hopefully ride Monbeg Dude for @MichaelScu in the WelshNational @Chepstow-Racing on Saturday."
