Horace Danby was a meticulous planner but still he faltered. Where did he go wrong and why?

Horace Danby had collected all the information about the owner and servants and studied the house carefully. He always planned his work well and was always alert. When the lady in red came and announced that she was the owner of the house, her appearance was such that he was fooled. When she took a cigarette from a silver book, Horace took off his gloves and held his lighter towards her. When opening the safe to get her jewels, he forgot to put on the gloves and so, his fingerprints were found on the safe and he was arrested two days later. Infact, the owner of the house was an aged lady of sixty and he had been fooled by that young lady who was herself a thief, who robbed the jewels and fled away easily.
