I have a couple of clues from yesterday’s DP that have stumped me.
I’ve put the answers in the comments so that you can have a go answering the clues yourselves.
2 down: Popularity assessments made by sailors (7)
3 down: Bear to get jockey upset (4)

2 down: RATINGS (I assume it’s a reference to ranks in nautical vessels, in which case it hasn’t been worded well).
3 down: POOH — huh?
2D seems OK to me. Ratings is a reasonably common term for the non-officers on a ship.
Can’t help with 3D, I’m afraid. The bear part is ok, but “to get jockey upset” doesn’t make any sense to me. It can’t be just the name of a jockey I haven’t heard of, can it? I don’t know DP well enough to say whether he’d use this rather than “Bear upset jockey”.
3D: what I said it can’t be is what it is. Hoop is Aussie slang for jockey, apparently.
See recent headline. You have to search for “hoop”…
DP usually piece of piss. Is he positioning himself for a shot at the title?
Wow, a hoop… who’d a thunk it?
Thanks a bunch.
DP can be funny sometimes and every now and again does a mini-theme, as was yesterday’s, but I don’t think DP is aiming for DA.
