William's Wishes was down on his nose at the second-last fence of the 32Red Casino Handicap Chase at Sandown but was still good enough to win well.
An even-money favourite who is now unbeaten in five starts over fences, he was switched to the inside by Paul Moloney and stretched two lengths clear of Nozic on the run-in.
"He's a very difficult horse to work out. He was a bit keen and made mistakes, and he only disappoints you at home," said trainer Evan Williams.
"He's entered for the Victor Chandler at Ascot but would be far more likely to go over to Ireland for the Dan Moore Handicap Chase (January 20 at Fairyhouse)."
Andrew Brooks is formulating a plan for Katenko (5-1), who stormed away in the 32Red HBLB Handicap Chase under a positive Aidan Coleman.
"He won that well and we've always hoped he would be a Grand National horse," said the owner. "He's only seven, but he is mature, and I believe horses are there for racing."
Bottom-weight Lord Of House (12-1) took a valuable prize for Charlie Mann in the 32Red Handicap Hurdle.
