Looks like it will be between Vannut, Shelepen, Fujisawa, Nishino, and Siraj for podium. (Edit: Oops, missed Kim! If she skates well she definitely has the technical firepower) Why did Daniels get a spot? I know she did well at nationals, but her summer competitions have been AWFUL. Then again, Lauren Dinh got a spot too...although Dinh got 2nd and Daniels got the pewter medal..

I wish the ISU website would just list all the entries for each JGP competition like it has already done for the senior ladies.
At the rink. Again.
They can't because the submissions aren't due from the federations yet. Some federations are deep and a second event is dependent on doing well in the first.
Siraj won't participate here for sure. She is just a placeholder and will get a spot if she does well enough in Latvia.
No, I'm pretty sure this is Siraj's second assignment. She placed top 10 at nationals and most importantly, made the JGP Final last year.

More or less: more is more
JGP Volvo Cup gold medalist Ryuju Hino should take gold for sure. No other man in this field has a JGP-medal. I'm thinking Dong-Won Lee or Thomas Sosniak might medal.
Polina Shelepen will medal, probably gold based on her consistency. Hae-Jin Kim could also take gold, IF she lays down her free skate. Other podium contenders are Polina Korobeynikova, Yukiko Fujisawa, Yuki Nishino, and perhaps Americans Ashley Cain and McKinzie Daniels.
Alexandra Stepanova/Ivan Bukin for gold and Anastasia Galyeta/Alexei Shumski for silver. Not sure about bronze.
At the rink. Again.
Daniels hasn't skated well this summer at all. I don't expect her to do well here. Cain came close in her first assignment. Shelepen should medal.
I think Shotaro Omori of the US will have a really good chance. He's been doing quite well this summer.
This seemed to be a much better outing for Nam Nguyen than his last JGP. He looked more confident and relaxed, and as a result his performance quality was higher than it was a few weeks ago. I'm glad to see that the experience is paying off.
