Dubai Gold Cup winner Certerach could have the Melbourne Cup added to his 2014 plans. Irish trainer Michael Halford flagged a possible trip to the Melbourne spring carnival after a controversial upset win in the $US1 million Group 2 race at Meydan early on Sunday Australian time. Certerach, a $34 chance, defeated 2013 Dubai Gold Cup winner Cavalryman by a neck, but Cavalryman's jockey Silvestre de Sousa claimed Certerach had impeded him. "The winner came right across me and took my ground, otherwise I would have won," de Sousa told Sporting Life. A stewards' inquiry was short-circuited when, reportedly, the objection was withdrawn by Cavalryman’s owner, Sheikh Mohammed. Halford said Certerach, injured in Dubai last year, had really matured in the past 12 months. "He's really grown up since then. He's a strong stayer and we'll definitely think about the Ascot Gold Cup and the Melbourne Cup," Halford said.
