Racing and Wagering West Australia stewards confirmed Friday morning that trainer Grant Williams has scratched Delicacy out of Saturday’s Group III Prince Of Wales Stakes (1200m) due to a minor flesh wound on the shoulder.

The withdrawal of Delicacy reduces the $150,000 weight-for-age contest to just five runners, headed by last season’s Group I Winterbottom Stakes winner Magnifisio,

Delicacy completed the Derby and Oaks double in South Australia and Western Australia at her last four starts.

The four-year-old daughter of Al Maher will now trial Monday.
