Sun Maiden can gain the Pattern race success that is so important for fillies and mares by getting her act together in the British Stallion Studs EBF Nottinghamshire Oaks Stakes.

A daughter of Frankel and a half-sister to the Group One winner Midday, Sun Maiden already has decent form - but her only win to date came in a novice event at Salisbury, albeit by 12 lengths.

She followed that up by finishing third to Magic Wand in the Ribblesdale Stakes at Royal Ascot and has been placed in two other Group races since.

The latest was on her seasonal debut at York's Dante meeting when she shaped well to take third place behind Lah Ti Dar in the Group Two Middleton Stakes.

That was only her seventh run, hinting Sun Maiden could still have room for improvement, while she has already done enough to suggest she is a cut above her Nottingham opposition.

Sprint specialist Robert Cowell can lift the racingtv.com Handicap over the extended five furlongs, with Burford Brown.

The Newmarket handler acquired the Swiss Spirit gelding from Hugo Palmer for 27,000 guineas at the Tattersalls Autumn Sales, and has already enjoyed success with him at Ascot four weeks ago.

That was only Burford Brown's second run for new connections, and a 4lb rise for that performance should not be too big a burden to overcome.

Mayfair Spirit is on a roll and can bring up his hat-trick in the Follow @RacingTV On Twitter Handicap.

He seems to have found his niche at 10 furlongs now, winning by half a length at this track at the beginning of April before adding another victory at Salisbury at the end of the month.

Mayfair Spirit has been raised 5lb for that win, which is obviously not ideal, but refreshed after a month off the track, he might have something still to give.

The in-form Felix Mendelssohn can defy a 7lb penalty in the Longwater Construction Supplies Novices' Handicap Chase at Fakenham.

Stuart Coltherd's eight-year-old has struck twice in May, at Perth and Kelso, and could well have more wins in him because he has really asserted in the closing stages.

Hepijeu capitalised on the last-fence fall of Achill Road Boy to score by 17 lengths on his recent visit to the Norfolk track, and may not need any such good fortune for him to follow-up in the Jarrold Ladies Day Handicap Chase.

Stuart Edmunds' charge may well have been beaten that day - but the race was over three miles five furlongs, and the drop down to three miles will certainly be in his favour.

Hepijeu was going along happily in front at that point over the longer journey, and can prove the point in his return.

Sporting Life tips:

FAKENHAM: 2.25 West To Crossgales, 3.00 Felix Mendelssohn, 3.35 Emerald Rocket, 4.10 Hepijeu, 4.45 Angel Of The North, 5.20 Mrs Vonn.

KILBEGGAN: 2.00 Union Gap, 2.35 Dolly Dancer, 3.10 Party Playboy, 3.45 Manomine, 4.20 Eamon High, 4.55 Jaime Sommers, 5.30 Jakoby.

LISTOWEL: 1.45 Between Hills, 2.20 Kalanoura, 2.55 Lumsden, 3.30 Defining Battle, 4.05 Scorpion Black, 4.40 Honor Oak, 5.15 Flat To The Max.

NOTTINGHAM: 2.10 Al Aakif, 2.45 Loolwah, 3.20 Mayfair Spirit, 3.55 SUN MAIDEN (NAP), 4.30 Burford Brown, 5.05 Amazing Alba, 5.40 Gavlar.

DOUBLE: Sun Maiden and Burford Brown.
