(I always know I'm going to get in trouble when the Google results for a phrase consist of nothing but arguments over proper usage... but “oaf" works much better than “UFO!" lol)

Congrats to Rog for an impressive unscrambling! ===[**CDM**]===

Glad you found the belt, Demosthenes - it's become a treasured relic (like Mrs Worrier...) smile

Travel delay reported to pugilist (9)

OK - a whole raft of hints:

- direct on the right
- 2½ vowels
- one indicator
- wordplay 3+5 3+6

Is this a case of 3 + 5 = 9, or does half a vowel make the difference...? headscratch lol

Once again I can't count! oops

Wordplay 3+6, I repeat 3+6

The half a vowel is what I have seen defined as a "semi -vowel" whistle

Hm....

You're looking for a word that means "travel" plus a word that sounds like a word meaning "delay ". Together they give a word that describes a type of pugilist.

And there's a Y ("semi-vowel") in there...

Thanks, Rog! wave

Seven in thirty might encompass a musical interval (5)

You're quite right, and thank you! catrub

I'm risking another pair of linked clues with no e in either of them:

1. One entering college hashed 2 (12)

2. Perhaps try private rendition of 1 (5-7)

As you have probably gathered, these are anagrams of each other: the answers contain two each of a r and t, the other letters not being repeated.

1. cvccvcvcvcvc
2. cvvcc-cvccvvc

In 2 private is a noun. smile

1. first letter m, last letter r
2. first letter c, last letter l - where/how would a private be tried?

Thanks, Lex! Very belatedly:

Part of the wordplay includes a quadruple definition, which itself contains a very minor bit of wordplay.

I am intrigued, but still struggling to figure out how to even begin to work out an answer to this one... hardwall

“shadow” is a positional indicator, and everything after that is part of the quadruple definition (though “low saint” is really a wordplay)
