Peter Chapple-Hyam will have to wait for a few weeks before he can start getting to know Hydrogen, the 2.5 million guineas colt he has been given to train by Qatar Racing.
Sheikh Fahad Al-Thani invited all of his trainers across Europe to a parade and then lunch in Gloucestershire on Sunday, before presenting them with envelopes containing the names of the yearlings which would be arriving at their stables.
And Chapple-Hyam, who trained Hydrogen's half-brother Authorized to win the Derby and has done well with the Qatari family's Caravan Rolls On this season, was the lucky recipient of the Tattersalls sale-topper.
Explaining the decision-making process, the owner's racing manager, David Redvers, said: "It was a mixture of things but Peter has a track record of taking top-class young horses on to greatness.
"He trained the brother and also did well with the horse he trained for us last season.
"He will stay here (Tweenhills Stud) for another three or four weeks. We just want to get him out and about and used to things a bit more.
"He should be in Newmarket before Christmas, and straight onto the Heath I should think."
