Alasi to swerve Sandown

Alasi is unlikely to take up her engagement at Sandown this weekend, with the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon on December 13 the likeliest alternative, according to trainer Paul Webber.

Alasi: Huntingdon hopeful

The versatile mare is entered in the Sportingbet Handicap Hurdle but the soft ground at the Esher venue is set to rule her out.

Alasi narrowly failed to register back-to-back wins in the Mares Hurdle at Wetherby in November on her latest start.

"Alasi doesn't like this sticky ground so she'll probably give it a miss," said Webber.

"She'll have an entry in the Peterborough Chase at Huntingdon, that could be next.

"That race often cuts up into quite a small field. The forecast isn't very good, though, so we'll just have to see."
