Indeed. Mace didn't trust Anakin... which is why he told him to stay at the temple... so perhaps Mace did see a betrayal in Anakin's nature... or perhaps he sensed enough confusion from Anakin to take the precaution of telling him to stay behind. Either way... as soon as Anakin showed up he became a danger and proved to Mace that indeed he couldn't be trusted. He should have been a target from that point on. But I don't think Mace would have been able to take Anakin. It would have been an interesting duel though.
