Tip Two Win make it a Doha double for Roger Teal with Mile success

Sat 24 Feb 2018

Roger Teal's star colt Tip Two Win charged home to secure his second victory at Doha racecourse this winter in the Al Biddah Mile.

The three-year-old grey bolted up on his Qatar debut in the Al Rayyan Stakes in late December and looked to have strong claims stepped up in class for this local Group Two.

Tip Two Win found himself a long way back in a steadily-run race rounding the home turn, but swiftly kicked in the turbo under David Probert and eventually won with something to spare.

Teal said: "He just never stops surprising me. He just gives and gives and that's all you can ask.

"I was a bit worried we were getting held in there. I was panicking, but David wasn't and thankfully he got him out.

"He's a dream for us. He's a professional and when they're like that it makes the job a lot easier.

"He was stepping up in trip today. We were very confident he'd stay the mile, but you've got to do it at the end of the day and he has."

There was further success for the British party in the Dukhan Sprint, with the David O'Meara-trained Intisaab getting up in the shadows of the post under a brilliantly-timed ride from Martin Harley.

Gulliver, trained by Hugo Palmer, was third.

O'Meara said: "After 100 yards it didn't look like it would go very well for us. They went really hard and there was a lot of trouble in front.

"Martin got a lovely slot on the rail and gave him a world-class ride, like you have come to expect from Martin.

"He's very consistent and he may go back to Lingfield for All-Weather Finals Day."

The British raiders were out of luck in the feature H.H The Emirs Trophy, but Harry Bentley delivered 2016 winner The Blue Eye with a perfect run to claim the prize once more.

Elbereth and Chemical Charge were unplaced.
