Mick Halford’s five-year-old disappointed on his return to action in the Irish Lincolnshire but having regained winning ways last month, he was the 5-2 favourite to clinch another valuable handicap. Foley, earlier successful on Final Frontier, navigated Hasanour into contention inside the final furlongs and always appeared confident he would pick up the pacemaking Breathe Easy. The market leader did just that and was good value for his half-length verdict. Halford said: “I’m thrilled with that. Shane said he travelled really well and when the gaps appeared he was able to take them. That’s a good trip for him and he loves it here. “He may go to Galway. Richard (McNally, owner) is a big Galway fan and he won there last year. The other option is a £150,000 handicap at Goodwood, but I’d say he’ll go to Galway. “He didn’t get into the Hunt Cup at Ascot but maybe it was a blessing in disguise as the ground was very fast. “He’s a very straight forward horse to train, and winning like that gives them confidence. “He could end up in Dubai some day.” Hasanour lunged late to claim his third course and distance success at the Curragh in the Paddy Power Handicap.
