Verdict

Genius Step won a Goodwood maiden for Godolphin in 2011 but didn't run very well in two races last year. INNOCUOUS looks the pick of his stable's trio with Wayne Smith on board and his overall form on the track, which includes a victory last winter, should be good enough for this. Desert Of Dreams looks as though he could be the stable's second string as Royston Ffrench is on Vocational, who looks high enough in the weights. Mizwaaj could be more of a threat as he won twice on Polytrack for Godolphin last year.
