I dont think they did - We saw the gala live on TV and I didnt see them there. It could be they were replaced by the Reeds, or it could be they wanted an early start to France - their next GP is TEB and it's got to be rough on the body to go from Russia to Japan to France in 2 weeks. I also liked their programs and if it went by what I enjoyed the most they would have been 2nd. I didnt like either the Shibs or C/L program very much. Hitchcock OTOH was outstanding. I would have put G/P in 3rd.
