Call string functions on a smart value for select box Edited

I have a select box whose values are in the format of:

"1 - stuff; more stuff; and other stuff"

I am trying to use smart values in an automation to get the 1.  This seems straight forward and I should be able to do

{{issue.Field Name.charAt(0)}}


{{issue.Field Name.substring(0,1)}}

However, both of these return None.  While debugging, I've found the following things return the expected result:

{{issue.Field Name}}

{{#urlEncode}}{{issue.Field Name}}{{/}}

Interestingly, these return None:

{{issue.Field Name.urlEncode}}

{{issue.Field Name.toLower()}}

My suspicion is that it is returning a non-string value an the functions are therefore failing?  How can I call string functions on select box values?
