Tally-Ho bred Teej A adds to hot 2yo run for Mehmas

Tally-Ho bred Teej A continued the great run of her sire Mehmas when striking in the Woodcote Stakes at Epsom for Karl Burke on Friday.

An impressive winner at Chester on her previous start, the filly turned in a no nonsense display under Clifford Lee, making light of the undulations to hold a prominent position before kicking clear to hold off the colt Megalithic for a clearcut score.

"She’s very quick," said Clifford Lee. "She jumped lovely, was able to get in the right position and travelled very well into it. At Chester the last day she travelled very well, she did it very easily, and she did it very easily again today. She could go to Ascot - she’s done this nicely and she should take another step forward."

Co-owner Nick Bradley of Nick Bradley Racing didn't rule out a crack at Royal Ascot for the filly but suggested that the Group 3 Prix du Bois could also be on the cards.

Teej A is one of no fewer than 13 2yo winners so far this season for Mehmas. Others from the past week or so include Sir Yoshi, Blinky, Miss Collada and Aesterius.

Teej A was sold by us at last year's Tattersalls Somerville Sale to Nick Bradley Racing. She was bred at Tally-Ho out of Mild Illusion, a daughter of Requinto who won the Listed Bosra Sham Stakes for the Old Stoic Racing Club and Johnny Portman.
