About half way through I got BACON (BANCO) and after a fleeting search for EGGS I spotted OYSTERS (STOREYS) and then TOAST (STOAT), so I felt I knew what I was looking for. Finding PRUNES (SPURNE) I realised I was dealing with *both* Angels *and* Devils (on Horseback), confirmed by THRONES and DEMONS. But what about ‘Horseback’?

Only then did I realise that 4 of the down ‘specials’ were sitting on the other 4 down ones, and (as did Ken) tumbled to GAN, i.e. NAG backwards, with similar results.

Quite satisfying.
