Owing to the Iso Age, I've been doing a bit more clue-wrangling, gobbling grids in ill-advised numbers. Hence the surge in Huh posts over the the last month or so.
Most of these bafflers hail from an old Times collection, unless otherwise stated. Their logic hovers just within my grasp, needing your nudge be fully grabbed.
I'd appreciate any insights you can add. For the more spirited buffs, see what alternative clues you can devise for the same answers.
1. Bloomers made here in Coventry = OVEN [Clearly a hidden recipe, but bloomers?]
2. Film director with a good score when shooting = WINNER [Times 11769 - since when is a director a winner?]
3. Pale nut found under tree = ASHEN [Sunday Times 1198 - en as nut?]
4. Serious art making money? = EARNEST [Same puzzle - different quandary]
5. One being short of training is a firing offence = ARSON [Ditto]
6. Dope runs across grass becoming increasingly active = SPRYER [Times 11776 - SP as dope?]
7. Diamond-shaped tablet is a success = ACHIEVEMENT [The what?]
8. Location for play people without exception remember = RECALL [Times 11799]
9. Picture latter half of a trip to Santiago? = IMAGE [Same puzzle, and I remain at sea]
