Based at Lodge Hill Stables in Alcester, Dan's success has continued to flow and the future looks strong with an increase in both the number and quality of horses. Notable winners that Dan has trained since establishing the facility at Lodge Hill include early success at Grade 3 level with the likes of Willow’s Saviour, Shelford, What A Warrior and Grade 2 victories with Three Musketeers, Blue Heron, Al Ferof, Its’afreebee, Ch’tibello, Value At Risk and more recently North Hill Harvey & Roksana. It was during the 2016 Cheltenham Festival that both Dan and Harry scored their first Cheltenham winner when Superb Story scored a memorable victory in the Vincent O’Brien County Hurdle, and further Festival success followed with Mohaayed taking the 2018 renewal of the very same race under Bridget Andrews.

Dan is excited to be training for Racegoers Club and said: "The Leading Light filly seems a straightforward and honest type and she's working well at home. We've had her in the yard a couple of months now and we're just building up her workload. I'd like to think she'll be ready to run in the New Year."
