Ben Linfoot tipped 4/1 winner Dark Power on Tuesday and is backing John Quinn's Indian Pursuit to do the business in Wednesday's Sky Bet Go-Racing-In-Yorkshire Summer Festival Handicap at Catterick.

Recommended bet: Ben Linfoot's Daily Nap, July 26


1pt Indian Pursuit in 4.00 Catterick at SP

John Quinn’s Indian Pursuit can continue his good record at Catterick by taking the Sky Bet Go-Racing-In-Yorkshire Summer Festival Handicap at the North Yorkshire track on Wednesday.

He might be 2lb out of the weights, but other than that this looks a really good opportunity for a horse that has yet to finish out of the first three here in five visits.

His victory here came in a maiden on soft ground, so the conditions hold no fears and they should help him at the five-furlong trip given he does most of his racing over six.

He has the speed for five, though, as he showed when winning over the distance at Newcastle in February, and he’s worth forgiving a below-par run at Pontefract last time as he did too much too soon on his first start for 10 weeks.

With that run under his belt much better is expected at his favourite track, especially off a low weight from a plum draw in stall one.
