Peer Selection by hop

is it possible in some way to select peer Not by icmp-RTT(icmp-query on),
but by Hops: e.g: If(Hops > 5)return "UDP_MISS_NOFETCH ?

Here is some explanation of my problem:

I have machine with 2 network interfaces. The routing is different for
each interface. So, I have Squid-1 on 1 interface and use _Satellite_ link
with 256K, and Squid-2 (parent for Squid-1) on the 2 interface _Ground_
link with 64K. Whereas it is _ground_ link, RTT in most cases is faster,
then in _Satellite_ link. But using this _ground_ link is suitable ONLY in
cases when hops <= 5, otherwise _Satellite_ link is preferred without
paying attention to RTT.
Any ideas?
