I'm sure this is obvious but I can't see it!!
7a 'Discouraged from hiding comb' ?c?u?

and - why Turandot for 'Opera act conceals a little spot'. I understand the 'dot' but what has 'turan' got to do with it?

Finally 16a 'Repeatedly equalling two profits? (5,3,5) is probably the same word either side of the word 'and' - but what?

Thanks in anticipation

I think TURANDOT is part of a puccini opera, but I am going from memory not reference

Hi Deekay
7a 'Discouraged from hiding comb' ?c?u? = scour(Di(scour)aged.
Turn = an act on stage (star turn etc) with an "a" inside it.

Thanks Trevor. I got ligament just as you posted but probably would not have got quoit.
Incidentally, have now checked and TURANDOT was a Puccini opera
