I don't think you can, bc a far as I know 1.03 is a public beta patch. Steam only updates to official patches, unless otherwise offered, which I don't think AGEod does with Steam.
To check the status of your update options, go to Steam -> Library -> Games, right-click Civil War 2 -> Properties UPDATES tab -> Automatic updates -> Always keep this game up to date. But you will only get the latest official updates, which on my installation is 1.02a.
I've never tried to apply beta patches manually to a game installed by Steam, but if I understand correctly, Steam will only apply an update when a new one becomes available, so hypothetically you should be able to apply a beta patch to your installation, without Steam messing with it, until such time as a new official patch is made available.
To find where Steam has installed the game go to Properties -> LOCAL FILES tab -> BROWSE LOCAL FILES... to open the installation folder in Windows Explorer. This is where you would install a patch manually.
If this folder is under 'C:\Program Files' I would strongly suggest first moving it to a new location by going to Properties -> LOCAL FILES tab -> MOVE INSTALL FILDER... and select a location outside and folders controlled by Windows, eg NOT under 'C:\Program Files' or 'C:\Users'.
