ABU DHABI // Nieshan, the Akbar colt, carries the hopes of Eric Lemartinel's title defence of the National Day Cup at the Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club tonight.

Lemartinel has racked up three doubles in the capital city's three meeting and is looking to go even better with Chase Me and Albar Lotois, in the second and last races respectively, and Nieshan in the feature race.

Leimartinel said: "Nieshan is not 100 per cent but we expect him to run a big race."
