Financial Times 14,613 – Crux

Posted by Sil van den Hoek on 15th May 2014

Sil van den Hoek.

Monday Prize Crossword/May 5

A fairly easy one from Peto, restoring some confidence after the drubbing from Gaff earlier this week. Steady progress for most part, with the NW quadrant providing some resistance.

Besides the clues that reference 17, 19, I can’t find, or, more likely, I’ve missed, any other references to the event. Thanks to Gaff.  Definitions are underlined in the clues.
