Oakleigh Plate for First-up I’m All The Talk

I’m All The Talk secured several typically positive results for Gary Portelli over the 2014 Spring Carnival, and will return to racing in exceptional condition in Saturday week’s Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield.

Securing two wins and a further four minor places over his 12 start career so far, I’m All The Talk has not been seen at the races since failing to match the late pace of Bel Sprinter and Miracles Of Life in the Group 2 Caulfield Sprint (1100m) on October 18th.

Revealing the four-year-old has suffered from several notable ailments over the last 12 months, Portelli told TVN he has been thrilled with the form and class displayed by I’m All The Talk since returning to work and is confident of a competitive performance in the 2015 Oakleigh Plate.

“He got really sick and was on a drip for three weeks – he couldn’t eat because of this thing in his throat, but he seems back to his brilliant best now – I think he’s ready to show his best once again,” Portelli said.

“He is so fast, and he does it naturally.

“All along we’ve had him set for the Oakleigh Plate first-up and he’s right on target.”

Running third in a minor over 1100m on debut in late 2012 before breaking through for a maiden race win in the Warwick Farm Plate (1000m), I’m All The Talk stamped his claims as a serious racing contender when returning in 2013 for second in the Australian Turf Club Handicap (100m) and fourth in the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) before taking out the Group 3 Skyline Stakes (1200m) by close to four lengths.

Unable to figure when tenth in the Golden Slipper, the Stratum entire returned in 2014 for a credible fifth in the Group 3 Concorde Stakes (1000m) on September 6th; progressing to back-to-back second place finishes in the Group 2 The Shorts (1100m) and Supporting 4Tracks4Kids Plate (1000m) leading into the Caulfield Sprint.

Nominations for the 2015 Oakleigh Plate are due by Monday, while a final field and barrier draw will be completed and released by midday, Wednesday.
