Willie Mullins makes Time for Galway

Ashley Iveson

DRIVE Time is likely to be a member of Willie Mullins' team for Galway next week following his pleasing performance at Killarney earlier this month.

A dual winner over hurdles when trained by Howard Johnson, the seven-year-old returned from more than a year off the track to make a winning debut for Mullins at the Punchestown Festival in April.

He justified cramped odds when winning a qualified riders race on the Flat at Killarney and is a best-priced 14-1 with some bookies for the Galway Hurdle.

"I was very pleased with him in Killarney. He did everything nicely and all going well he'll be at Galway," said Mullins.

"We'll put him in the GPT Handicap for amateur riders and he's in the Galway Hurdle. That's the way we'd be looking at the moment."
