Drilling 8 1/2" hole out of 20" shoe

At a recent DWOP, a suggestion was made to drill 8 1/2" section out
of 20" shoe (Reason : to appraise a nearby shallow horizon, before
plugging back and drilling the main bore to TD.

The idea was rejected due to concerns about cleaning the casing ID
at the low rates that would prevail through the BHA.

Does anyone have any experience of this and, if so :

> How did it go ?
> What would you recommend ?

Many thanks
