Verdict

Golden Steps made his debut at Wolverhampton in December and performed with credit behind the odds-on Nova Charm. However, the form has worked out poorly and Marco Botti's charge is unlikely to represent any value so ELEUSIS is taken as an alternative. Chris Wall's filly is a half-sister to several winning juveniles including the Group 3 winner Pyrrha and wouldn't need to be special to make a successful start. Goldfellow is by the speedy Winker Watson and should be forward enough but though Happydoingnothing's form figures don't look bad he was beaten eleven lengths by sole rival Speedfiend at Kempton.
