Formscan - Vandeek got the better of RIVER TIBER in the Group 1 Prix Morny at Deauville last month but there are strong reasons to believe that form can be turned around here. River Tiber had an interrupted preparation for that race, having previously won the Coventry Stakes at Royal Ascot, and the son of Wootton Bassett also didn't look entirely at ease on the very soft ground at Deauville. Back on a much better surface, Aidan O'Brien's charge can turn the tables on Vandeek and get back to winning ways. Jasour was well-held when eighth in that same race in France but maybe the ground was also an issue for him and he could bounce back. The unbeaten Task Force could take another step forward.
