Evan Williams: Waiting for William's Wishes

Sky Bet

The racecourse return of smart chaser William's Wishes has been delayed again after a disappointing schooling session.

After 21 months on the sidelines, the racecourse return of William's Wishes has been delayed for at least another week after the talented chaser left trainer Evan Williams underwhelmed after a schooling session.

The seven-year-old has been off the track since taking his record over fences to three from three at Hereford in January 2011, but he has been back in training for some time.

However, his work at Williams' Llancarfan stables has not been encouraging so the trainer decided against running him at Cheltenham on Friday.

"He schooled badly. His work is always bad, which makes it difficult, and his schooling has been bad as his work recently," said Williams.

"He's sound, but I'm not getting enthusiastic about whether I have got the horse in the same form as I had him when he was looking like a progressive young jumper.

"We'll keep chipping away and see what happens, but he jumped badly this morning so we didn't declare him."
