Looks mammalian

Yes, I wondered if it was a horse tooth, however the pattern of enamel looks different to equus teeth I researched online.

Looks a bit like some horse teeth fossils but the ridges on top are different?

Looks like the premolar of a deer. Quite a small one - perhaps a roe deer.

I think it's actually the molar of a cow (Bos). It seems to be around 3cm across and this puts it in the scale of a larger animal than deer. Also, the middle lower edge has a small rounded projection between the two cusps and this is a distinguishing feature for cows.
