Verdict

DE PLOTTING SHED was regarded by many as one of Gordon Elliott's handicap snips at Cheltenham but he didn't read the script in a Listed event and weakened quickly over the 2m4f trip. His earlier efforts, particularly when three lengths behind Presenting Percy at Galway, suggest he should gain his first victory over fences. Mon Lino has won three times over hurdles and, though not arriving in the best of form, looks the type to make a chaser. Lean And Keen has shown the occasional glimpses of ability though has a long absence to overcome and could find the ground too testing but Inis Meain, successful eight times in a long career, can reach the frame for the eighth time in his 16th run over fences.
