Faithful Son favoured.

BRITISH bookmakers concur with their Australian counterparts in favouring Faithful Son for the Fosters Melbourne Cup.

The Godolphin charge, fourth in the Caulfield Cup at the weekend, is 6-1 with Coral and 7-1 with Victor Chandler, while Taufan's Melody, the Caulfield winner, is rated a 10-1 chance with Coral and 14s with Chandler.

Ray Cochrane, who rode Taufan's Melody to victory, arrived home in Newmarket yesterday still awaiting confirmation of when the suspension he received begins. The Jockey Club is expecting information of the ban dates from the Australian authorities.
