Post the main line as your solution, not just the first move, and try to use some method to obfuscate to prevent spoiling.
 
The puzzle is not intended to be very difficult, but I don't know. I'll call it a medium.

Fritzlein's post contains the correct solution. All gold moves should be uniquely optimal save the goaling move.

My idea:
 
 

1g 1g Ra2 Ra6 Cb6 Dg8 Rh5 Rh6  
1s 1s ha7 cd5 re6 dg5 dg6 rh7  
2g Dg8s Dg7w rh7w Rh6n  
2s dg6e dh6w Rh7s rg7e  
3g Df7e Dg7w rh7w Rh6n  
3s dg6e dh6w Rh7s rg7e  
4g Df7e Dg7w rh7w Rh6n  
4s dg6e dh6w Rh7s rg7e  
5g  
 
For me Silver is doomed to lode because of the repetition rule.

I take back my solution!!! It's gold who loses if I do that.
 
I made the error to think the repetition rules refers to the list of moves not position

Select to see: Silver is forbidden from so doing by the repetition rule because the resulting position had already occurred twice with Gold to move: After 3s and after 4s.
 
EDIT: Did you really need to remove your post?
