Trainer Anthony Nunes on Sunday closed a 1000-2000 Guineas double with SUPREME SOUL, beating stablemate TOONA CILIATA by two lengths, after landing Saturday's fillies race with I AM DI ONE.

SUPREME SOUL broke sharply with Shane Ellis, alongside stablemates EARN YOUR STRIPES and TOONA CILIATA, soon joined by FATHER PATRICK.

Wayne DaCosta's 3-2 favourite, RUN THATCHER RUN, made his move at the half-mile, circling SUPREME SOUL to join the leaders entering the straight.

However, far-striding SUPREME SOUL attacked two furlongs out and went by RUN THATCHER RUN approaching the last furlong.

SUPREME SOUL moved away from TOONA CILIATA and a weakening RUN THATCHER RUN. TOONA CILIATA rallied for second to hold at bay 15-1 chance SENTIENT by a neck

Ellis was among three jockeys with two winners on the 10-race card, earlier booting home CODE OF HONOR in the third, the first of two winners for trainer Michael Marlowe.

Apprentice Christopher Mamdeen also had two winners, adding to a three-timer on Saturday, moving to 28 winners, three clear of Walker.

Aaron Chatrie guided home back-to-back winners, CAPTAIN GRANVILLE in the seventh event and 27-1 outsider SMOKESCREEN in the eighth.

The Easter weekend of racing will feature the Lady Geeta Trophy for grade one horses on Saturday, followed by Monday's holiday meet.
