Verdict

After six second spots in 11 starts over hurdles, MAYBE I WONT appears well named but he's won eight times on the Flat so there's nothing wrong with his attitude and he may just have been coming up against decent opposition. Greensalt showed smart form in bumpers, though he was a beaten favourite in two of his three starts, and he should make a decent hurdler. Politeness showed plenty of ability in bumpers and will have needed the experience on his hurdling debut here last month though it's Milo Man who looks the main threat. He made a spectacular debut in a heavy ground bumper at Taunton before running moderately in the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham.
