Good question ~ since you asked

Why does Purrier get no love? She already beat Schweizer this season and hasn't lost. Champ or bust for Ellie.
Schweizer had dropped her, and Purrier came from way back for the victory.
I was surprised / impressed by her win.
However, Schweizer will be more aware of her capabilities the next time,
and I expect with the higher level of competition this weekend that the pace will be faster.
I'm not writing her off, but think that the 6k pace will be too fast for her to win from the others.
