After a brace of placings in Australia’s most prestigious two-year-old races, Godolphin believes the stage is set for Anamoe to finally snare a juvenile feature.
Sandwiched in between was an impressive Todman Stakes victory and trainer James Cummings is confident the conditions are ripe for the youngster to win again.
Bookmakers agree, installing the colt as an odds-on favourite for the G1 Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Saturday.
“Brilliance, speed and determination were stamped all over his Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper performances,” Cummings said.
“He is a very athletic colt and we have always felt he would get stronger with racing.
“The 1400 metres of the AJC Sires’ Produce appears tailor-made.”
Along with Anamoe, Four Moves Ahead was the first filly across the line in fourth, Captivant was doing his best work late for fifth while Queen Of Wizardy finished unplaced.
Anamoe will bid to replicate the feat of Godolphin’s Microphone, who was second in the 2019 Slipper before winning the Sires’ Produce.
