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."
