Sam Twiston-Davies will ride The New One in the Stan James Champion Hurdle.
As Paul Nicholls' retained jockey, Twiston-Davies had the option of partnering Old Guard in the two-mile championship on March 15 after abandoning The New One in the Christmas Hurdle at Kempton in December.
However, he will reunite with The New One, trained by his father Nigel, as he looks to improve on last year's fifth place.
"Sam has revealed that he is going to stick with The New One in the Champion Hurdle so therefore Nick Scholfield will be on Old Guard," Nicholls confirmed on his website.
The New One finished runner-up to Faugheen in the Christmas Hurdle, while Old Guard came home fourth of the five runners.
Meanwhile, the jockey has decided to ride Saphir Du Rheu in the Ryanair World Hurdle on St Patrick's Day.
Aux Ptits Soins and Saphir Du Rheu both worked at Kempton before racing on Saturday but Twiston-Davies has decided to keep faith with the latter.
"They both looked great and Sam has just phoned me and thought about it over the weekend and said he is going to ride Saphir Du Rheu so Nick will be on Aux Ptits Soins," Nicholls added.
