Times Quick Cryptic No 1259 by Izetti

A typically testing but fair puzzle from Izetti today with admirable surfaces to the clues. A good mix of clue types, we have no less than 3 cryptic definitions and a couple of "rubbish" clues. (No I don't mean the clues are bad!) I don't recall anything holding me up too much and I finished in about an average time, but one or two are a little tricky, I think. Lots of candidates for Clue Of the Day, REBUSES for one made me laugh, but I pick SHIPOWNER for the slightly sneaky definition. Thanks Izetti! How did you all get on?
