MICHAEL OWEN found the back of the net at York for the second time in less than 24 hours.

A co-owner of Goffs UK Premier Yearling Stakes hero Ever Given yesterday, he also celebrated victory with 16-1 shot Flaming Rib at the track on Wednesday.

Both horses are trained by Tom Dascombe in Cheshire, at stables the former Liverpool and Manchester United ace owns. After 3-1 favourite Ever Given came home a neck in front, Owen said: “I’ve had horses all my life but when you’re sharing it with mates, a few good lads, it’s particular­ly special.”

Cruyff Turn (28-1) ran out a shock winner of the Clipper Logistics Handicap, under an enterprisi­ng ride from David Allan. The jockey set out to make the running and conserved enough energy to nab victory from Frankie Dettori’s mount Magical Morning by a head.

Dascombe said: “What a tough horse, I’ve been quite hard on him but he’s improved with every run.

“He’s come here and really toughed it out, Danny gave him a great ride – it all panned out. I’m just lucky to train him.”
