Celtic Swing, not seen on a track since last summer, is unlikely to race again until the autumn with the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe and Breeders' Cup Turf among his targets.

The colt is fully recovered from the knee injury, sustained during the Irish Derby, that ended his 1995 campaign, Nick Babbington, racing manager for owner Peter Savill, said yesterday.

However, although Celtic Swing will be put back into training by Lady Herries immediately, he will undergo a patient build-up and not reappear until the back end of the Flat season once the ground eases.

Celtic Swing had been entered for the Dubai World Cup in March but had been made only a reserve for the race.
