Exciting times for the Ravenstone Partnership, as Smart Exit gets his first entry - in a Chepstow Bumper next Tuesday. It is a meeting that has been transfered from Taunton which is too firm, and the Monmouth track will suit him far better than the tight turns of Taunton. SE's half brother won his bumper there in the spring and it will be interesting to see what our lad can do. He is working well at home, but this is his debut, and he will learn an awful lot from it.Even the weather gods seem to be smiling on us for once as it looks as though Chepstow will get a nice drop of rain over the weekend which will produce ground with ease which is what we think SE will need. All we have to hope for now is a favourable ballot, as there are 52 entries, but as it is our first go we should be OK on that score.
