Comments on the clue
1.I really like this but maybe Leicesters would fit better with 'they'
2.Best of the hidden reverses
3.Having (rev.) hidden word begin at "s" after apostrophe feels wrong – word before is filler. Linkage b/w "on the turn" and def is great
4.Not sure if it should be "they" or "it"
5.Nice idea but not clue quite grammatical
