Pace Up Front Will Suit Fui San In TAB Highway

By Tony Megahey

The imposing strike rate of five TAB Highway wins for Shoalhaven ace trainer Terry Robinson suggests promising Fui San will be the big watch at value odds for Saturday’s $60,000 episode over 1200m at Rosehill Gardens.

However, Robinson is still weighing up his options after Fui San drew a precarious barrier 20 in a capacity field for Blake Shinn weighted on 57.5 kilos. While Fui San’s wins before a spell were over 1750m at Canberra in July and 1650m at Moruya in June, the astute Robinson is renowned for having his charges primed first-up for sprinting.

Early in the series, only two horses won a brace of Highway races and both were trained by Robinson; his versatile wet tracker King’s Officer and consistent Rose of Man.

Fui San’s emergence can be compared with King’s Officer’s Highway sprint grounding that was followed by a spectacular four successive city wins. He had 2000m and 2400m form but early in his career had fresh wins at 1400m and 1500m.

“Look, with the barrier we’ll look at options and plan ‘B’ with owners. But this gelding goes alright and he’ll be better suited out to a mile; but if we start and they go hard, it’ll suit him,” Robinson said.

“There's no reason why he can’t show something fresh if the pace is on. He's the same as King’s Officer early, they’ve got to start somewhere, and in a suitable class 2 for the prizemoney if the options are limited in the country.”

In one of the strongest Highway races on record, Saturday’s capacity field contains nine last start winners where Fui San is a $16 chance on TAB fixed odds. The fourth emergency, Equal Balance, has been installed as the $4.40 favourite.
