|2018 Winner:||Dainty Tess|
The Prince Of Wales Stakes is the first weight-for-age race of the new season in Perth and is held on the same day as the Gr1 WS Cox Plate at Moonee Valley in Melbourne.
A more than handy field of local gallopers will generally contest this race and the better class gallopers have a clear advantage under the weight-for-age scale.
The genuine WFA gallopers may go on may go on to tackle a race like the weight-for-age Gr2 Lee Steere Stakes the following month at Ascot and Idyllic Prince (2009) was the last horse to claim the Prince Of Wales Stakes & Lee Steere Stakes double. In recent times Luke's Luck (2nd in 2012), Waratah's Secret (2011) & For Your Eyes Only (3rd in 2010) all managed to run placings in both races.
Others may head to a race like the Gr3 Colonel Reeves Stakes on WA Champion Fillies Stakes Day and Durendal (4th in 2018) managed to win that race after running fourth in this event.
Dainty Tess (2017-2018) won the Listed Crawford Stakes over 1000m at Ascot before winning this event in successive years for trainer Daniel Morton. Recent Prince Of Wales Stakes winners include Rock Magic (2016) and Akhedasset (2015).
