Default EOI with 135 - what are the chances of being selected?

Hi, I am an accountant, ICAEW qualified. What are the chances of getting selected from the EOI pool with 135 points? Accountant is classed as skilled experience but is not on any of the shortage lists. Thanks!

You would need a job offer, nothing without a job offer under 140 has been pulled from the pool for the last 2 years

Thanks! We had visas in 2009 and they lapsed. Regretting it now!
Does that apply to skills that are on the Long Term Shortage list too?
(My husband is on the long term shortage list, but only gets 120 due to age)

IRD are approved employers (they can recruit directly from overseas), and they usually have accountancy jobs going, might be worth a look?
