Evan Williams' charge put four disappointing efforts behind him when finishing fourth in the Ultima Handicap Chase, snatching minor honours in the dying strides of the three-mile-one-furlong event.

The 10-year-old had previously shown his best form at distances of around two and a half miles, but Williams thinks Buywise could now need a longer trip and is relatively unconcerned by the switch to an extended three miles and five furlongs.

He said: "I was pleased to see him run so well at Cheltenham as he had been running so badly through the winter.

"We're now going too go to the Bet365 Gold Cup at Sandown, it's worth a crack with him.

"He popped around in the Grand National last year (12th) and he certainly looked to be staying on at Cheltenham, so perhaps a step up in trip is what he needs now.

"He came back fresh and well from Cheltenham and we think the race will suit him."
