Have your confusions sorted right here.
Update: I think some vocabulary troubles have me scratching my head:
9 across: One 13-across (local), a punter rejected, heading to Cross, the sap (3, 6)
So what kind of tree is this?
3 down: Horror quality integral to sea-monster (7)
6 down: Can’t find a house to do your nana (2, 5)
10 across: Discussed devious life in West Ireland (5)
No doubt I’ve never heard of this place.
27, 1 across: Racehorse, in fleeing raider, comes to evil lord (5, 5)
I love the Star Wars reference, just missing an explanation.
