Glory Of Paris can continue his recent spell of good form with victory in the Follow Top Tipster Templegate At SunRacing Handicap at Newcastle.

The five-year-old was running well for Rod Millman last October, before changing hands for 20,000 guineas and joining Michael Appleby's team.

He immediately gave his new connections some return on their investment, edged into second on his initial outing before hitting the target at Chelmsford on his second start for Appleby.

Glory Of Paris has since hit the frame again twice, most recently when third at this track last week.

The Sir Prancealot gelding reared as the stalls opened that day - and after making up lost lengths, he took a keen hold to get back in front and paid for those exertions in the finish.

Glory Of Paris clearly had nothing go his way that day, and is worth another try here.

Roaring Rory struck gold at this track in November, and can make it a course double in the Betway Casino Handicap.

Scoring over six furlongs for the first time that day, he won what was only an average race, but this event is little better - and a 1lb rise should prove no bar to success.

Vrai is an intriguing recruit for Kevin Ryan, and worth following on her second British start in the Ladbrokes Handicap.

She failed to win any of her six French outings but caught the eye on her first run on these shores when finishing third over six furlongs.

Vrai was putting in all her best work at the finish, so it makes sense for Ryan to try her over seven furlongs now - and she is definitely one for the short list.

Sporting Life tips:

NEWCASTLE: 3.55 Dommersen, 4.25 Taceec, 4.55 Vrai, 5.25 Dawn Delight, 5.55 GLORY OF PARIS (NAP), 6.25 Roaring Rory, 6.55 First Excel, 7.25 Steelriver.
