Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, who were forced to withdraw from Finlandia Trophy early this October due to his strained neck, were pleased with their performance, although they had difficulty with their lift. They earned 65.09, nearly 10 points below their personal best.

“It was refreshing to be out there,” Virtue said. “We thought we had a great skate. We can fix the levels later.”

Italians Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte skated their short dance to music from the MGM musical “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers,” including “Bless Your Beautiful Hide” and “Wonderful, Wonderful Day.” They earned 65.08, just .01 off of the lead.

“We enjoyed the performance,” Lanotte said. “We were able to calm our nerves.”

Russians Ekaterina Riazanova and Ilia Tkachenko were third after the short dance, with 55.80 points. They skated an elegant and engaging program to Lerner and Loewe’s “My Fair Lady.”

“We are really happy with the performance, it went pretty well,” Tkachenko said.
