Today is the Derby, a HORSE race run at EPSOM.

We have 2 quizzes for you (hedging my bets here), one slightly easier than the other.

 

The EASIER quiz is... there are 6 anagrams of the word HORSE - how many do you know ?

 

The slightly HARDER quiz is : how many of the 7 6-letter words do you know with EPSOM and a blank ?

 

Well done if  you get 3-4 in each quiz... if you get more than 5 on the second.. I suggest you head to the bookies now!

ANAGRAMS of HORSE :

HEROS, HOERS, HOSER, SHERO, SHOER,  SHORE

 

Anagrams of EPSOM + a blank :

 

B - POMBES

D - MOPEDS

I - IMPOSE

R - MOPERS, PROEMS

T - TEMPOS

Y - MYOPES

 

 

To celebrate the beginning of May, what 4 letter words can you make with MAY and a blank ?

There are 17 in all, about 7-9  are everyday words - getting more than 11 is very good.

There are 14 words in total, and about 8 are everyday words.

EASTER + U : AUSTERE

EASTER + V : nothing

The penultimate part of this weekend's EASTER quiz.

 

What bonuses, if any, can you maker using EASTER + M, EASTER + N, EASTER + O, EASTER + P, EASTER + Q and EASTER + R.

Again one of the 6 letters doesn't combine with EASTER to make a bonus. But which one ?

 

16 words to find, about 7-8 are everyday words.

EASTER + N : EARNEST, EASTERN, NEAREST, RATEENS, STERANE

EASTER + O : ROSEATE

EASTER + P : EPATERS, REPEATS, RETAPES

EASTER + Q : none 

EASTER + R : RETEARS, SERRATE, TEARERS       (ED : helpful hint here, there are all 'cutting' words).

 

Continuing this weekend's Easter quiz..

 

What seven letter words, if any, can you make from EASTER + F, EASTER + G, EASTER + H, EASTER + I, EASTER + J, EASTER + K, EASTER + L.

Again 16 words to find, 6-8 are everyday ones. 

At least one of the combinations doesn't make a word at all!
