No Pago Pago for 2013 Golden Slipper Hope All The Talk

Gary Portelli will bypass Saturday’s Group 2 2013 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill in order to give All The Talk every chance of tasting success on the big stage in Saturday week’s Group 1 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m).

The two-year-old colt is already assured a place in the $3.5 million event courtesy of a dominant Skyline Stakes win and Portelli believes having the week off will give him the best possible chance in the Slipper.

“If only five nominated for the race I would have seriously considered it because you never pass up the opportunity to win a Group 2 race,” Portelli told Racingnetwork.

The son of Stratum had a Golden Slipper tune up at Warwick Farm this morning, leading all the way in an 800m trial.

He finished in a time of 46.1 second and while Portelli is pleased with his condition, he is hopeful he will not be the leader in the Slipper.

“Not many lead and win, I don’t think it is a good idea to burn across the field and try to run them off their feet,” he said.

All The Talk shot into serious Golden Slipper contention after the Skyline Stakes, which he won by 3 1/2 lengths in a convincing performance.

The talented two-year-old is rated a $16 chance in the Golden Slipper market.

Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Overreach is an overwhelming favourite at $2.05 after storming to a 4 1/2 length win in the Moet and Chandon Stakes on Saturday. That performance came on the back of a six-length Widden Stakes win last month.

Criterion ($10) is second favourite after winning the Todman Stakes on Saturday while Victorian filly Villa Verde remains in the hunt at $11 despite finishing four lengths second to Overreach on Saturday.
