He also firmed from $51 to $15 for the Golden Slipper in March with his performance to come from back in the field, extending his margin with each stride to be 4-3/4 lengths ahead of on the line.

“He is a definite Golden Slipper horse,” Waller said.

“This was his third run and he is improving all the time.

“He goes to the Inglis Millennium next.”

Accession was Waller's first winner by Brazen Beau who he trained to two Group One wins and a close second in the Diamond Jubilee Stakes at Royal .

Despite his previous win, Accession eased from $2.70 to start $3.20 with punters supporting the Ciaron Maher and -trained who was backed from $2.70 to $2. 60.
