i Cryptic Crossword 1043 Nestor

June 13, 2014

I must have been very much on the setter’s wavelength today, because I sailed through this, though in common with a lot of solvers back in 2009 I had 18d wrong.

Loads of ticks by the clues, but my COD nomination goes to the straightforward, but elegant 14d – ‘Train mole? He could better that! (4-5)’.
