17-race point-to-point maiden, who is also unsurprisingly 0-4 under rules; has little conceivable chance.
Kalanisi mare (cost €4,800 as a 3yo); never really looked sharp enough for bumpers (0-4), running her best race on debut here (Tapeta) in February; off hurdling at a realistic level for local owners Donna and Dave Armstrong.
Shown no signs of ability in three runs in bumpers, including most latterly for this trainer at Aintree in October (125/1); makes her hurdles debut seeking a transformation.
Easy 9L winner of a good ground Southwell bumper on debut in September 2017 and fairly highly tried thereafter; things haven't exactly gone as planned over hurdles so far, but the switch to a more galloping track (and cheekpieces) could suit.
Progressed in four runs in bumpers, beating the now 105-rated Keep The River by a neck at Kelso (2m, good) in May; far from disgraced (fourth) over a similar trip on hurdles debut at Perth in September.
With Stuart Crawford when finishing a distant third of four on debut in a Sedgefield bumper in March (heavy); sold for £5,000 last month and switches to hurdles wearing a newly applied hood on debut for Tim Reed.
