Class acts of China field should end up with the silverware
Plenty of chaff in the Shenzhen line-up

The Shenzhen International is not blessed with many star names, but one bookmaker appears to be overrating the chance of someone outside the world's top 150 lifting the trophy.
Sky Bet go 4-5 about that scenario unfolding. The 10-11 available about a player inside the top 150 of the world rankings becoming Shenzhen champion is much more appealing.
Backers at 10-11 will get 28 men for their money – Bubba Watson, Tommy Fleetwood, Bernd Wiesberger, Ross Fisher, Joost Luiten, Thongchai Jaidee, Brandon Stone, Scott Hend, Fabrizio Zanotti, Thorbjorn Olesen, Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Victor Dubuisson, Jordan Smith, Dean Burmester, Bradley Dredge, David Lipsky, Alex Levy, Jaco van Zyl, Pablo Larrazabal, Sam Brazel, Rikard Karlberg, Jorge Campillo, Dylan Frittelli, Joakim Lagergren, Brett Rumford, Nicolas Colsaerts, Richard Bland and Ryan Fox.
It is a shame Haotong Li and Nacho Elvira are just outside the 150, but the winner looks likely to come from the 28 mentioned.
It is important to note that 50 players from the China Golf Association are in this field – largely complete no-hopers – making it easier for the cream to rise to the top.
Winner to be in top 150 of world rankings
