MICHAEL SCUDAMORE (pictured) has secured the services of Paul Carberry for Monbeg Dude in the Crabbie's Grand National at Aintree on Saturday week.

Carberry, who won the world's greatest steeplechase in 1999 on Bobbyjo, trained by his father, Tommy, was in the saddle when giving Monbeg Dude a fine waiting ride as Scudamore recorded his biggest training success to date in last season's Coral Welsh National.

Carberry has partnered the nine-year-old on two other occasions, most recently when the combination finished fifth in the Grimthorpe Chase at Doncaster. Scudamore said: "Paul is going to ride and I'm very happy to have him.

"Someone with Paul's skill, experience and craft is not a bad man to have on board."
