Roger Fell is a fairly recent addition to the training ranks, having bought his current base, Arthington Barn Stables in Nawton, North Yorkshire in 2008, but not taking over the training licence, in his own right, until 2016. In his first season, Fell saddled just eight winners, but increased his tally to 34 in 2017 and 56 in 2018; in 2019, so far, he has already saddled 42 winners and amassed over £395,000 in total earnings, so is well on the way to enjoying his most successful campaign yet.

In his short career, his stable star has undoubtedly been the Lope De Vega gelding Burnt Sugar, owned by Middleham Park Racing, who has won three valuable seven-furlong handicaps, including the Bunbury Cup at Newmarket and the International Stakes at Ascot in 2018, and even tried his luck, without success, in the Group One Prix de la Foret at Longchamp on his final start of the season. Caspian Prince, now a 10-year-old in the care of Michael Appleby, was also a decent money-spinner for Fell, winning his first two starts for the yard, including the Listed Mercury Stakes at Dundalk, in late 2016. A former haulage businessman, Fell has already proved himself quite adept in his new career, so should continue to progress through the training ranks.
