Gary Portelli’s faith in All The Talk remains firm despite a first-up defeat but it’s not enough to stop him from employing two gear changes for the colt’s Warwick Farm assignment.

All The Talk was highly-rated by Portelli leading into his debut in an 1100m Rosehill race where he sat outside the lead before finishing third to the impressive Charlie Boy and Windjammer.

Portelli wants All The Talk to be at his best on his home track on Saturday because he plans to spell the horse to concentrate on being around when the world’s richest two-year-old race is run.

“I’m hoping he might be a (Golden) Slipper horse yet,” Portelli said.

“I’m going to experiment with a tongue tie and with winkers on Saturday.”

The trainer has an inkling All The Talk may have got his tongue back in his throat and cut off his air supply during his debut race, which has prompted the move to apply a tongue tie.

“I thought we had them at the top of the straight and it looked like his condition gave out,” he said.

“That might have been a combination of his condition and possibly he might have cut his air off with his tongue.

“If he puts it together at his next start, if the tongue tie works, he should be able to get to the corner and then dash.”

All The Talk, who was ridden by Kathy O’Hara on debut, will also have a jockey switch with Blake Shinn to ride.

Portelli is also positive about the prospects of Miss Spoken in a fillies and mares race.

Miss Spoken has recovered from an elevated temperature which forced her scratching from a race two weeks ago.

“She worked fantastic this morning,” Portelli said.

“Kathy O’Hara rides her and I’m very happy with her.”
