Willie Mullins admits Simenon faces a tough task from his wide draw in the Dubai Gold Cup at Meydan on Saturday.

The seven-year-old has been lumbered with the outside stall of 15 in the 15-runner line up for the Group Two contest over two miles.

It will be jockey Pat Smullen's job to try to turn the disadvantage around, but connections report Simenon in top form following his pipe-opener in the Nad Al Sheba Trophy when he was fifth to Cavalryman.

"Simenon has done a good bit of work since his first start at Meydan on March 1 and we're happy that he's improved since and is back to himself," said Ireland's champion jumps trainer.

"Emmet (Mullins, nephew who is overseeing the horse in Dubai) text me to say we've got an awful draw to overcome, 15 of 15, so that won't be easy.

"Pat Smullen takes the ride and, all said, we are looking forward to the race as we're very happy with Simenon."
