Hunting Coloradan sat with bow bouncing (12,two
words). The letters I have are A??O?AL?ANDO I
think they are correct,but haven't a clue where
the split is. Any help out there?

Hi everybody,panic over have just clocked the
answer ARCO SALTANDO;a musical term meaning
bouncing bow; however,here is another poser:

Jerry,

I think it's ARCO SALTANDO - which is apparently a method of playing a violin by bouncing the bow on the strings.

Hi Jerry.

"Take turns to see a town in Italy" I made that MANTOVA.

I have the answer to 10d; let me know if you still need it, but by now I doubt that you still will.

I have 3 more to complete. For 24d "Stroke cormorant in Loch Lomond area (5)" I have ?CART but cannot see the answer. Or maybe I have some wrong letters there?

Hello again Jim,
I would like 10d as I just cannot see it.
The word you need is SCART,tis a Scots word for
the cormorant (sometimes spelt Skart)

Thanks for SCART Jerry.

PASSADES is 10d (PASS=happen, SAD=serious, E=first letter of embolus) meaning some sort of set of movements used to train (or show-off?) horses.

I don't think I would have got that I don't
think I have ever come across the word;which
only shows up my meagre store of knowledge!
Cheers,
