Earlier report Tuesday morning
 - Racing NSW Stewards reported on Tuesday morning that they have received notification from trainer Mr Dar Lunn that Not For Export, which gained a place in The Country Championships Final at Randwick on 1 April 2017, as the second WRA representative following the withdrawal of La La Loopsy, had pulled up poorly following its 7th placing at Scone on 5 March 2017 and has been spelled.

Trainers Mr Mark Jones (4th placegetter Nordic Noir & 6th placegetter Eagles Dare) and Mr Wayne Collison (5th placegetter Magic Over The Bay) have advised their respective horses have been spelled and are not able to take their place in the final. Consequently 7th placegetter Strathaird, trained by Mr Garry Lunn, will take its place in the final as the second representative from the WRA region.
