Jonny Eager is 15lb higher than when scoring over 3m at Carlisle in February but was beaten less than a length over 4m at Hexham last month and won't fail through lack of stamina. Bennys Well got back to winning ways at Market Rasen last time and was second over track and trip around this time last year but NOTONEBUTTWO (NAP) could take advantage of his lowly rating given he came up against an improving stayer at Newcastle after winning here at the start of last month. Waltz Legend is still a maiden under Rules and his form has tailed off a little lately.
