Given the large, competitive fields assembled each year at the Breeders’ Cup, horses that wouldn’t be near double-digit odds at any other point in the year suddenly size up as longshots.

It’s one key trait of Horse Racing Nation’s Super Screener handicapping system to, well, “screen” out the pretenders and hone in on true high-priced contenders in these races.

Handicapper Mike Shutty identified the following Breeders’ Cup runners as either top longshots or top value runners in the 2017 races at Del Mar:

 Race  Horse  Odds  Finish
 Juvenile Fillies Turf  Best Performance  15-1  2nd
 Juvenile Fillies Turf  Fatale Bere  25-1  5th
 Juvenile Turf  Untamed Domain  12-1  2nd
 Juvenile Fillies  Blonde Bomber  30-1  3rd
 Juvenile Fillies  Caledonia Road  17-1  1st
 Turf Sprint  Stormy Liberal  30-1  1st
 Filly & Mare Sprint  Ami’s Mesa  18-1  2nd
 Filly & Mare Turf  Wuheida  11-1   1st
 Turf  Talismanic  14-1  1st
 Turf  Sadler’s Joy  16-1  4th
 Classic  Gunnevera  15-1  5th

Aiming to follow up on that success, Shutty lists the following as three horses the Super Screener says to include on your tickets Saturday at Churchill Downs:

Ruby Notion: 20-1 Turf Sprint

“This mare is in top form, and her form cycle analysis projects a big move forward here,” Shutty says. “Two of her best races came over the Churchill Downs turf course, and she performs well at this distance. Her style is to stalk and then pounce. Here, you’ll get her at a price.

Shamrock Rose

20-1 in Filly & Mare Turf

“She fits the profile very well of the huge longshot bomber that typically hits the bottom of the Superfecta in this race,” Shutty says. “She comes from a top barn and relishes this distance showing strong late pace. Definitely use on the bottom of exotics.”

Discreet Lover: 20-1 Classic

“He s
hocked with a win in the Jockey Club Gold Cup after a pace collapse,” Shutty said. “He’s best at this distance and gets a hot and pressured pace again here. A top Super Screener bomber all year — again, user underneath.”
