Dual Group winner Darci Be Good looks set to be weighted out of a run in the South Grafton Cup on Sunday.

Kembla Grange-based trainer Bede Murray had nominated the former Hawkesbury Gold Cup winner for the event but said it was unlikely the five-year-old would now make the trip.

"We were waiting to have a look at the weights but I think he might get too much," he said.

"He will run at Rosehill on Saturday if he doesn't head up to Grafton."

Darci Be Good is more likely to contest a benchmark 90 handicap (1900m) at Rosehill where he was handed 59kg.

Murray is still looking to target the highly rated country carnival and hopes to send up to eight runners for next week's Ramornie and Grafton Cup days.

"They are all performing well so we could take about seven or eight. We are not going up for the joy ride," Murray said.

A decision will be made over the coming days.
