Scholfield, who won the Grade One Tolworth Hurdle on Melodic Rendezvous at Sandown last season, heads over to Down Royal on Saturday to ride the Nicholls-trained Rolling Aces and Kauto Stone in the two feature races.
Nicholls' first-choice jockey Daryl Jacob is currently on the sidelines, leaving Sam Twiston-Davies to partner Unioniste and Tidal Bay at Wetherby.
Speaking in his Betfair column, the former champion trainer said: "You will see that all my runners at Wetherby [on Friday] are ridden by Nick Scholfield, who I have just signed up as my second jockey."
