Anamoe is looking to become the sixth Godolphin horse to complete the Run To The Rose-Golden Rose double after taking down a star-studded field at Kembla Grange on Saturday.
The colt was impressive in claiming the key lead in race to the three-year-old feature, ahead of San Domenico Stakes winner In The Congo and Remarque.
The Run To The Rose featured four of the five Group 1-winning two-year-olds from last season, one of the most talent-laden fields to line up at Kembla Grange in recent years.
Just six horses have completed the double since the Golden Rose was established in its current format in 2003.
Five Godolphin runners have achieved the feat while the sixth, Hallowed Crown, was trained by James Cummings while in partnership with grandfather Bart.
While Anamoe will have to step up from 1200 metres to 1400m in two-weeks time, Cummings is confident the colt's best is still to come.
"What I like is he doesn't look like an absolutely natural 1200m horse," Cummings said. "We're looking to go out in trip to seven (furlongs) and a mile.
"It was great that James (McDonald) was able to let the race unfold when there was speed up front. The horse just gets mobile and gets into his gorgeous action and he savaged the line like a horse that's ready to go right on with it."
The Golden Rose is shaping as an exciting Group 1 contest, with Remarque likely to improve after running third on Saturday.
Richard and Michael Freedman will also be hoping Stay Inside returns to his best, the Golden Slipper winner finishing fifth in the Group 2 Run To The Rose.
Robert and Luke Price are also set to start Jamaea in the race after the filly took out the Furious Stakes last weekend.
After bypassing the Golden Slipper in the autumn, the trainers are eager to challenge the boys in the Golden Rose.
"Luke and I, our preference is to take on that big colt," Rob Price said. "I reckon she'll be competitive with him."
Chris Waller also indicated he will send Giannis to the Group 1 feature, the colt claiming the Listed Dulcify Stakes at Kembla Grange on Saturday afternoon.
In doing so, the three-year-old would follow a similar path as 2018 Golden Rose winner The Autumn Sun.
Such is the regard the trainer holds for this colt, Waller feels Giannis can walk in the footsteps of the five-time Group 1 winner.
"The Autumn Sun was the last one to do it and we'll have a serious look at this horse now," Waller said. "From memory, the Autumn Sun might have had some blinkers on, so it's all about Giannis here.
"It's pretty good talking about them both in the same sentence. He's got a long way to go, but he's heading in the right direction."
In Saturday's other black-type races, Brock Ryan rode Chat to victory in the Theo Marks Stakes.
Boom New Zealand mare Entriviere made a statement in the Group 2 Sheraco Stakes, racing away from her rivals to emerge as a potential Everest runner.
The horse has developed into a star sprinter, winning six of her eight starts on both sides of the Tasman.
Saturday's outing at Kembla Grange was her second in Australia, Entriviere the runner up in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes in April.
Trainer Jamie Richards has multiple big-race options for the spring, the Everest looming as a lucrative target.
The Sheraco Stakes has acted as a launching pad for the contest, Haut Brion Her winning the 2020 edition before running fifth in the Everest.
Slots in the $15 million event are filling up, with James Kennedy handing Rothfire his place on Saturday morning.
There are now just six spots remaining in the 12-horse field.
Richards' original plan was to build towards the newly-created Invitation, a $2 million feature race run over 1400m on October 23. The event is only open to fillies and mares that are invited to line up.
Entriviere is the current TAB $4.50 favourite for the race and jockey James McDonald said the extra distance will suit the horse well.
"She's a lovely mare," McDonald said. "She's got an impeccable record, she's had a couple of blemishes, but apart from that, her determination to win is just incredible.
"She'll run a strong seven (furlongs), that's for sure. She's going to have to, from here on in, she's got good competition.
"I think she's crying out for a bit of rain, a bit of give in the ground. The track's racing pretty firm, you wouldn't want to see her too many times on firm ground."
