I wouldnt think missing one race will make them unfit or any less fit, its what goes on weeks before that will make a differance
IMO. .

Surely no unfit birds that are due to be going to a national

We never even put ours in over weekend and was only a 2 hour 20 min race but they're fit enough

I don't think for a moment that unfit birds should go any where.
However I think you may mean 'Race Fit'.

Then yes if 'Loft Fit' and looking and playing the part, then they can be sent. Of course the knowledge you have of your' birds and distance is easy. Are they been up the road etc. will also have a bearing as to how far etc.

If you're doos are not race fit by now you will struggle in a west wind if any your doos has had the last 4 races they should be ok the early doos got a good line of flight last week but some of the later ones had to fly 8 & 9 hours so a weeks rest won't doo them any harm aslong as you haven't been over feeding
