The Job Is Right has been very disappointing so far but the application of blinkers and Derek O'Connor's presence in the saddle may bring about some improvement. Bally Longford looks as though staying chases will be his game and Sizing Solution, a very easy winner between the flags in December, looks more of a threat on his bumper debut after being repeatedly impeded over hurdles at Leopardstown. BENEMEADE showed some ability on his debut and put the experience to good use with a fine effort against the consistent Milan Bound at Fairyhouse. That should have brought him to concert pitch and he's handed the vote. One Cool Boy is out of a 6f winner so should have more natural speed than most of these.
