Team Hawkes, who trained Estijaab previously have been very bullish about the chances of Remarque and confident their winner can live up to expectation.
The boom colt made an impressive start to his racing career winning well on debut in January before tackling the Group 2 Todman Stakes where he finished second before Godolphin’s star in the making Anamoe.
Remarque began his Spring prep earlier this month and the Snitzel colt was “mortally unlucky” according to Arrowfield Stud Boss, John Messara, after finishing third.
The Hawkes runner was sent around a $2.90 favourite in the listed Rosebud stakes but was badly held up when coming into the straight, and despite a good turn of pace late was unable to catch Paulele.
"He was very unlucky ... mortally unlucky really when you analyse the race," Messara told Sky Sports Radio.
"Virtually stopped dead in his tracks trying to get through a bunch of horses and then had to stop, go around them and come again. He's sectionals were amazing."
The Group Three feature is set to feature a high calibre of runner and Messara has said that the race will be a great guide to see where Remarque sits.
"I think he's a fantastic horse and we'll see him next week in the San Domenico against the other good three-year-olds, including I think the Golden Slipper winner," he said.
"It'll show us how good he is or whether he's up to standard."
With Star and Arrowfield in co-ownership of a slot this year it is expected that one of the Arrowfield runners would be lining up in the world’s richest turf race.
"We're excited about it (The Everest), it's the race you've got to be in."
"In the back of my mind, I'm hoping next week that he (Remarque) blows them away and invites himself into The Everest. But he'll have to be at his very best and he'll have to show us that he's good enough."
Remarque is currently a $26 chance for the Everest after tightening from $34m earlier in the week.
