she wasn't on GP last year due to injury, so she also fell down in isu standings and this year she couldn't go to GP. but she did the minor competitions with good results. Last euro she did (2008), she was 5th.Also, why so much hype on Marchei? If she's so great why isn't she on the GP and other international events a lot?
I think that the two italians and the two russians are the strongest getting into euro, then I've only guessed about who could be the best in this particular event. I've put Kostner behind only because she is the biggest question mark IMO, if she skates clean, as I've said, she can win, but looking at consistency, the other three seems more regular (though also marchei struggled in Merano Cup and leonova in the nats).
