Fairyhouse, Punchestown and possibly Cheltenham remain on the agenda for the six-year-old.
The County Wexford trainer has lost none of his faith in the JP McManus-owned gelding after he was beaten by the highly-promising Annie Power in the paddypower.com Novice Hurdle.
A decision on whether Defy Logic takes up his one entry at Cheltenham, in the Neptune Investment Management Novices' Hurdle, has yet to be decided.
"He's 100%. We were disappointed to be beaten, but he's come up against something probably special," said Nolan.
"I still think we have a very nice horse on our hands and we are looking forward to putting him over a fence later on.
"We haven't spoken about Cheltenham yet, so I don't really know. We just want to get him to settle a bit better and get him to drop his head a bit.
"We will be looking at Fairyhouse and Punchestown if he doesn't go to Cheltenham. We will wait a couple of days to see what we do."
