Comments on the clue
1.There are too few "r"s in the undevilled version, and it's uninteresting besides that
2.You've got an extra R which disappears – M(aster)r Daisy.
3.Possibly the worst PD clue in the history of PD clues, or a very strong contender.
4.a bit too simplistic compared to some efforts at concealment
5.Faulty clue – the undevilled version would be "M Daisy". Not clear why "Master" makes more sense than "Mr".
