Well, you're right that there's one step from the remove clue and two steps from the slate clue :-)

I thought this one might be tricky

Very good. I think you’re correct retrospectively <ok>

Not McCulloch I'm afraid. What was the logic?

I’m going to put Steve Davis in the mix.

Davis was the last winner of the Mercantile Credit Classic, before it was ‘removed’ from the calendar.

There are a couple of links to ‘slate’. A slate is another word for a tab, or credit (Mercantile Credit).

And a roof tile (MercanTILE) is often called - and composed of - slate.

I know it’s wrong, but I’m just pulling at a few loose threads <laugh>

I like the logic, but it isn't Steve Davis.

Like a number of the recent clues, we're just looking for a current player's family name.

Scott Donaldson?

One of Donald Trump’s sons is called Barron. If you bar someone, you remove them from an invitation. Not sure how the remaining ron/Ron relates to slate, but thought it was worth a go.

Andrew Pagett?

A clean slate could also be a new page, and you could remove something from somewhere else by getting it

Not Donaldson.

Sorry, seems this clue is a bit too hard.
Remove gives you a prefix.
Slate, along with its most common collocation, gives you another word. Put the prefix and the word you get from slate together for your answer.

I’ve got it!!!

Ron always slates venues. That must be it. Right…? <laugh>

But no, I’m a bit stuck. I’ve done the usual routine of reading through the current ranking list. Struggling to find anything that really jumps out.

Re: 2 Word Clue

So the prefix could be ‘de’?

Peter Devlin?

Or ‘un’…

Theppy Un-Nooh?

Re: 2 Word Clue

Or maybe Yu Delu, although Delu isn’t the family name in this case, I believe :chin:

Ooh, we're getting very close with the slate clue :-) A gnat's hair from the solution I'd say.

By jove, he's done it <ok>

Un-new admittedly being something of an invented verb :-)

Wow. I admit, I wasn’t really sure of that. Just throwing sh*t and seeing if any stuck <laugh>

I’ll have a new clue ready shortly <ok>

Lets go Jack Lisowski, not sure how bear fits in.
