Haven Denney/Brandon Frazier free skate (Skate Detroit)

Adam Rippon free skate (Cactus Classic)
Looks like a potential opening setup for two quads, with two triple axels in the bonus, and a bunch of solo triples that interweaves with the choreography really well with little setup time.

Mirai Nagasu free skate (Skate Detroit)

Adam Rippon short program (Cactus Classic) - best viewed on mobile
Opens with his pattern to set up for the quad lutz, but does 3F3T in this version. Basically, a clean short program from Rippon in mid-July.

Adelina Sotnikova short program (Amazing on Ice)

Cheng Peng/Yang Jin short program (Amazing on Ice)

Xiaoyu Yu/Hao Zhang short program (Amazing on Ice)

Ashley Wagner free skate snippets

Rika Hongo short program (Dreams on Ice)
Exhibition layout includes a lutz to start and a flip after halfway. Will be interesting to see whether or not Hongo returns to the 3F3T that she was running with at the beginning of last season (it was never particularly successful in getting called clean).

Patrick Chan free skate

Shoma Uno free skate (Fantasy on Ice)
Exhibition layout: 4F, 4T, 3S, 3A, 3F, 3Lo, 3A, 3S - Looks like Uno may very well finally ditch his lutz, which has always been super sketchy in technique and very prone to getting a wrong edge call. I'll be interesting to see if there might be a quad sal on the way and/or where the second quad toe will be placed.

Aliona Savchenko/Bruno Massot short program (All That Skate)
Exhibition layout: 2twist, sbs2S, thr2A - the twist and sbs are, of course, going to be triple. But what's interesting here is the thr2A, which could just be a more difficult replacement for a thr2F in exhibition. Or it could very well be that they are working on a throw triple axel for their short program.

And, a real *preview* - Kristina Astakhova/Alexei Rogonov filmed a trailer for their Onegin short program. We have no idea what the skating content is, but what a cool idea from them.
