Paul Carberry: Rides Monbeg Dude

Michael Scudamore is hoping for a big run from Monbeg Dude in Saturday's Coral Welsh National at Chepstow.

The eight-year-old gave the fledgling trainer a first Cheltenham winner when landing a Grade Three in November from 1lb out of the handicap and the son of champion jockey Peter and brother of top rider Tom, locally-based Scudamore has booked crack Irish pilot Paul Carberry for the ride.

Scudamore remarked: "Perhaps it's not a vintage Welsh National if you look at the ratings.

"In years gone by, he could have struggled to get in, so that has to give you confidence.

"Looking at the market, he's beaten Teaforthree and Viking Blond around Cheltenham.

"He'll have to step up again having been put up 7lb, but I'm hoping mentally as well as anything he'll have come on for that.

"I see no reason why he couldn't come on a little bit more."
