    If Ashley manages to maintain form, not suddenly gets hit by nerves (I'm not expecting that but who knows), she's the favourite to win.

    I'm hoping for Akiko, but I'm predicting Ashley.

    Is Ashley Wagner running away with this poll because GS is a North American based forum? I mean there are two former world medalists in the competition.

    Or is she really that good and this is her breakout year?

    Wagner received higher scores than anyone else in the GP qualifying competitions, including the world medalists. Asada has looked very shaky jump-wise, and while Suzuki's looking pretty good she seems to be continuing her habit of making a major mistake in the short program. Ashley's also got great programs this year and seems very focused and determined.

    I'm not sure why you think the origin of the forum matters; there are lots of posters here outside of North America (have you seen the location poll?), and even those of use who are in NA are quite familiar with and appreciative of skaters all over the world.

    I voted for Wagner b/c she is the most consistent out of the bunch so far. Personally I dislike the style of her skating, seems very attack attack attack to me, but I don't deny that she is getting the job done and respect that. For me, she is definitely the safe bet to make - if i had money on this . Asada's been having problems with her FS, fully rotating only 3 triples in the last two competitions - she won't be able to match/best Wagner's 127s with that.

    I'm with you , but in the back of my mind is also a hope that if Mao can pull herself together, she could win because she has such beautiful music and choreography.
