Swiss Spirit has returned with a valid excuse for his disappointing display in the Prix de l'Abbaye at Longchamp on Sunday.
David Elsworth's sprinter arrived in France as a big player following a win in a Newbury Group Three.
However, he was never involved at any stage and was eased by William Buick once his chance had gone.
His owners, Lordship Stud, tweeted: "Swiss Spirit has come out of the Abbaye stiff behind and has sustained a minor muscular pull."
