The top qualifiers will be contacted a week prior to the final to confirm their position in the final 8. Greyhounds which have won more than 2 Category A (of the respective distance) events during the course of the series are still eligible for the final, but ineligible for further qualifiers. Greyhound must be nominated directly in to the event at the respective meeting for the nomination to be considered. 

Category A meetings relate to meetings as per the GRNSW Grading Policy; eg: Wentworth Park Wednesday and Saturday, The Meadows Saturday, Sandown Thursday, Albion Park Thursday, Cannington Saturday.
