Extracting the important ones out of that

1. Simon Yates (gbr)
2. Tom Dumoulin (nld) + 0.47
3. Thibaut Pinot (fra) + 1.04
4. Domenico Pozzovivo (ita) + 1.18
7. Rohan Dennis (aus) + 2.36
10. Fabio Aru (ita) + 3.10
12. Chris Froome (gbr) + 3.20

Yates - doing well but needs time on Dumoulin

Dumoulin - in the best position here.  Has it pretty much in hand, but not in pink so has no responsibility

Pinot - looking fine but needs time on Dumoulin and Yates

Pozzivivo - never going to win but looking great for a nice GC position

Froome - nearly getting to the point where he cant come back from some of those guys ... and definitely not to Dumoulin.

In it interesting to compare the state of play with this time, last year.
One ITT done, Dumoulin had a lead of almost two and a half minutes over the field.
There were 6 mountain stages and 29kms of time trialing left.
This year, there are 5 mountain stages and 34kms of time trialing left.

General classification after stage 11

1   Tom Dumoulin (Ned) Team Sunweb   47:22:07   
2   Nairo Quintana (Col) Movistar Team   0:02:23   
3   Bauke Mollema (Ned) Trek-Segafredo   0:02:38   
4   Thibaut Pinot (Fra) FDJ   0:02:40   
5   Vincenzo Nibali (Ita) Bahrain-Merida   0:02:47   
6   Andrey Amador (CRc) Movistar Team   0:03:05   
7   Bob Jungels (Lux) Quick-Step Floors   0:03:56   
8   Tanel Kangert (Est) Astana Pro Team   0:03:59   
9   Domenico Pozzovivo (Ita) AG2R La Mondiale   0:04:05

 As for the Zoncolan the only pointer we have to hand can be found in the 2015, when those three, plus Lopez, Chaves, Henao and Gesink battled it out on the climb that probably most resembles the Italian monster: stage 5 of the 2015 Tour de Suisse and the Rettenbachferner.
