Verdict

If Cheltenham festival fancy DE PLOTTING SHED settles in behind the likes of Mighty Stowaway and Mon Lino in the early stages here the Gordon Elliott-trained eight-year-old could take some stopping here to get back to winning ways in the opener for Grand National winning trainer/jockey duo. Lean And Keen in first-time hood and the veteran Inis Meain could hit the frame.
