Shocking win in Melbourne Cup

HORSE RACING: British-trained Crime Scene was denied a historic victory in the Melbourne Cup by 9-1 shot Shocking.<br /><br />A UK-based runner has never won Australia&rsquo;s biggest race but Crime Scene, trained by Godolphin&rsquo;s Saeed bin Suroor in Newmarket, led into the final two furlongs. However, Shocking, ridden by Corey Brown, snatched the &pound;3m prize by just under a length.
