This doesn't look the strongest of maidens and should be a walk in the park for the 525,000 euros yearling A GREATER FORCE if breeding is anything to go by. He's a full-brother to two Group 1 winners and a half-brother to four winners though he has no fancy entries and a belated debut is an obvious cause for some concern. Cailini Alainn makes a quick reappearance after finishing runner-up to the long odds-on Silwana at Galway on Saturday and she's the most likely winner if the Ballydoyle newcomer doesn't come up to scratch. King Schultz stayed on nicely when getting the hang of the job on his debut over a mile here last month and looks best of the remainder.
