3 Breeders' Cup 2018 longshots you can't ignore

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 Rose20-1 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 shocked 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."
