I know what you mean about playing vs practising (Grade 6 piano here). I'm reasonable at sight-reading and hopeless at playing from memory (a common correlation, I believe), but the funny thing is, there are some pieces I've learnt where, at a certain point, it becomes like riding a bike. Provided the music is in front of me, I can go straight back to them. Schubert impromptus and some Beethoven sonatas are good examples of this. I've been struggling with The Well-Tempered Clavier off and on for a couple of years now, the Bach-Busoni Toccata and Fugue BWV565 and the 2-hands arrangement of Dvořák's Slavonic Dances.
