Unowhatimeanharry is set for his next engagement at Haydock in February as he steps up his preparations for the Punchestown Festival.
The 12-year-old has had three outings already this season, most recently chasing home Apple's Jade in the Grade One Frank Ward Memorial Hurdle at Leopardstown over the festive period.
The Harry Fry-trained veteran finished a respectable second on that occasion ahead of Penhill and some other younger rivals. He is now heading for Merseyside, with a run in the Rendlesham Hurdle on the agenda.
Fry has already indicated that former Cheltenham winner Unowhatimeanharry will sidestep this year's Festival and is instead building up towards going for a hat-trick of Champion Stayers Hurdle titles at Punchestown in May.
Fry said: "He was no match for Apple's Jade on her happy hunting ground of Leopardstown, where she's unbeaten, but he ran another credible race and doesn't owe us anything.
"He's back with us now and seems in good form, so we might look at going to Haydock for the Rendlesham before heading back to Punchestown."
