    Top class effort to get that phrase into a decent grid!

    “S-car” clue also very good.

    Thanks to Hieroglyph!

    Thanks to Hieroglyph – fitting in a 53-letter phrase is a real achievement. My favourite clue is 22a.

    Well, I quite enjoyed this one so many thanks to Hieroglyph.
    Perhaps a few too many anagrams for my taste as they aren’t my favourite clue type (probably as I’m very slow to spot them!). The first clue jumped out at me from the ‘Poetic beasts set out’ bit and the enumeration, thank God for that as I’d never solve a 53 letter anagram in a month of Sundays!
