I keep wondering if Sasha skipped the practice to discourage negative speculation. There were internet updates in 2006 but now with twitter there are constant updates and speculation. One bad practice and it seems that the whole world will know it and that has to mess with the mind. JMO

I seem to recall TAT thinking Sasha did too much on the mornings of her LP's and that hurt her stamina wise, she would be too tired to get through. So, maybe she has learned something, learned what is best for her body.

My last minute prediction is Sasha will skate clean enough, just enough, to make the team and many will think she was gifted...she'll get no "e" calls, no downgraded jumps...while Mirai is hammered ala SC. Rachael has almost a repeat of SA LP, and Ashley skates very well. Sasha and Rachael make the team.
I REALLY hope Alissa and Caroline have their best skates, hoping for "once in a lifetime skates," tonight after such a disappointing SP.
