Trainer Jenkins says 'If my April forecast is right, he should be fit for the June or October stakes, but if the going looks hard, it might be months sooner than weeks.'" FEATHER YOUR NEST "Blinkered - could cause consternation by balking favourite. Head lad, Clive Jenkins, says 'Whatever the result, we're going to win, and if anyone thinks different let them bloody well try! Greatest danger, Shipshape Ted. At last meeting BROKEN PROMISES didn't get a place. SHIPSHAPE TED "Comes again and now and again in spite of fluctuating odds. Backers say it should be plain sailing in election stakes after his Australian triumph. Easily led to water. Head lad, Maudling, says 'He's a good honest performer.'
