B natural (also 2-3 on an Eb horn) is tough for me to hit 'on the fly' simply because it does not occur much in the type of music I play. I have the most problem with it when it occurs in upward runs. I play only Eb horns and I have more problems getting the E natural (1-2-3 or 2-4). I can explain away the 1-2-3 problem due to the fact that using that combination, you are using every length of tubing on a three-valved horn and the 2-4 problem on my 4 valved horns is just a matter of practicing. Unless you've got a leak somewhere, it should come as a matter of practice.
