Horse Racing: BEST OF THE REST GOES HERE.. RACING - BUDWEISER IRISH DERBY, THE CURRAGH: ALL EYES WILL BE ON THE FRENCH FANCY TODAY.

IRISH JIG can give trainer Ger Lyons (right) his second Group 2 victory in as many weeks in the Anheuser-Busch Adventure Parks Railway Stakes.

The Celtic Swing colt has quickly made up into a smart juvenile and produced a good effort to win the Rochestown Stakes at Cork two weeks ago.

Any ease in the ground would hold no fears for Irish Jig and he can prove too strong for the Coventry Stakes ninth South Dakota. That one may be the pick of Aidan O'Brien's three runners.

The English challenger Peace Offering is taken to see off stablemate Tax Free in the Bud Light Stakes.

There was only a short head between the pair in May's Palace House Stakes and on much slower ground Peace Offering looks good enough to turn the tables on Tax Free, who is looking to bounce back from an unplaced run at Royal Ascot.

Three-year-olds have quite a good recent record in the Scurry Handicap and with this in mind Michael Halford's Gradetime is taken to succeed. She was having her first run for nearly a year in a Naas handicap won by the useful Contest six weeks ago and shaped with plenty of promise in fourth.

The frustrating Mooretown Lady can land the mile handicap. She is still a maiden, but has more than enough ability to win a good prize as she showed when third to Namaya here in May.
