Western Australia’s best galloper Delicacy is the final field favourite to win Saturday’s $500,000 Group I Perth Cup (2400m) at Ascot.

The Grant Williams-trained mare broke through for her first win of the campaign at her most recent outing in the Group II Cox Stakes and bookies expect her to overcome the 59kg impost in Saturday’s feature handicap.

Delicacy has opened at odds of between $2.10 and $2.40 to record back-to-back wins despite leading Perth jockey William Pike dumping the multiple Group I winner to ride the stablemate Neverland.

Neverland is a winner of six of her 10 starts and is the second pick in fixed odds markets at odds varying from $3.50 to a top quote of $4.20.

The two mares are the only runners in single figure odds with Bedamijo on the third line of betting at $12.
