Oscar Whisky bids to atone for his fall at the final flight last year as he tackles the Coral Hurdle at Ascot on Saturday.
Nicky Henderson's charge was upsides Overturn and seemed to have every chance in the two-and-a-half-mile heat when crashing out at the last hurdle, which proved the only slight disappointment in an otherwise fruitful campaign that culminated in a second Aintree Hurdle win in April.
Henderson said: "Two and a half miles is blatantly his optimum trip. He was out on his feet after Cheltenham - he was very wobbly after the race - but to beat Thousand Stars by a neck at Aintree was fantastic."
He added: "He'll go to Cheltenham at December and Cheltenham in January.
"Then we'll switch back to two miles for the Welsh Champion Hurdle, which was off last year. Then we might miss Cheltenham altogether - we might go for National Spirit at Fontwell in between - and then on to Aintree."
Get Me Out Of Here was beaten just under two lengths by Oscar Whisky at Cheltenham last term but signed off the campaign with victory in a Fairyhouse Grade Two at Easter before returning with a win at Kempton.
Jonjo O'Neill's runner steps back up in trip for this race but jockey Tony McCoy knows more improvement is needed to top Oscar Whisky.
He said: "He won at Kempton on his first run (of the season), but he has to step up to beat Oscar Whisky - he has won the Aintree Hurdle a couple of times and is a dual Grade One winner, so he's going to be very hard to beat. We'll see how it goes. The trip shouldn't be a problem to him and he's been a great horse."
Brampour finished a length and a half adrift of Get Me Out Of Here at Kempton but jockey Harry Derham believes the step up in trip, combined with a 4lb pull in the weights, will help the chances of his mount.
He said: "Life is going to be tough for him this year as he did so well last season and he has to run in these kind of races. He is stepping up in trip, which will suit him as he stays well, but the ground might just have gone against him a bit, although it may not be ideal for one or two of the others. He will certainly have a good each-way chance."
