Pic D’Orhy, a winner of three of his ten chases, put that experience to good use when giving weight and a beating to his three rivals to land the £22,500 Aubrey Loze Memorial Intermediate Chase (Class 2), highlight of Newton Abbot’s sell-out final meeting of 2022 on Saturday.
Winning trainer Paul Nicholls had taken last year’s running of the race with the classy Bravemansgame and, returning after wind surgery, Pic D’Orhy made every yard of the running with Harry Cobden to hold off the challenge of chasing newcomer Kissesforkatie, the two having drawn clear. Rated 142 over hurdles, Kissesforkatie never put a foot wrong and, on this form, looks to have a future over the bigger obstacles.

The 2022 season comes to an end at Newton Abbot on Saturday with the £22,500 Aubrey Loze Memorial Intermediate Chase (Class 2) over two miles and five furlongs the highlight of an eight-race card and it could prove to be a good afternoon for champion trainer Paul Nicholls who has a host of well-fancied runners.
The feature looks a good opportunity for Pic D’Orhy, a winner of three of his ten chases, to add to Nicholls’ race record, the trainer having been victorious with Bravemansgame last year. Pic D’Orhy was reported as having made a respiratory noise after being pulled up at Aintree in April and returns here after wind surgery which will, hopefully, have put him spot on.
