Queenslander Cylinder Beach has fled Sydney's big wet only to be confronted by a likely deluge in his home state.

Trainer Desleigh Forster had planned to continue Cylinder Beach and stablemate Too Good To Refuse's Sydney campaigns in the hope the rain would stop.

"But in the end it just got too wet. They get through the wet but to compete against the top horses they probably need a good track," Forster said.

"So we have come home and there is always next spring or autumn. They are both only four-year-olds.

"They both raced well in Sydney without having much luck when they got back too far in their races."

The remnants of Cyclone Debbie are making their way down the east coast from north Queensland and are expected to dump heavy rain in the south east corner this week.

"You can't do much about nature. If it rains, it rains but it is following me around," Forster said.

Cylinder Beach is headed to the Toowoomba Cup on Saturday week.

"I am looking more long term to the Brisbane Cup over 2400 metres for Cylinder Beach," Forster said.

"He has done well since coming back from Sydney and I am looking forward to the winter with him."
