This seems, to me anyway, to contain several tough questions. No's 9 & 25 are very 'open' {too general} and I'm groping around hoping to hit something so as to get a foothold to an answer! Struggling with 13, 31 & 45 also. Perhaps I'm 'off form'? Any hints/clues appreciated. I can help on some others.

I agree, exactly the same questions I am struggling on, but question 16 is an awful worded question, very ambiguous. Is this EXACTLY one mile or OVER one mile!

@sophocles,
16. '...win an English classic race OVER A DISTANCE OF ONE MILE?' I took it to mean a mile, not over one mile?! Do others agree?

@Ramires7,
Agree - exactly one mile. Also struggling on the same questions.

For what it's worth, I am struggling with 9, 14, 18, 25, 31 and 44. Usually I struggle with two or three. This time it's half a dozen.

@NoGreyMatter,
This is a tough quiz, obviously, having regard to the various responses. You don't mention 13, have you an answer? Conversely, I have cracked 44. A hint/clue for a hint/clue?

@Ramires7,
OK. The answer is in the poem's title. If you google a key word from that sentence and key words from the question I am sure you will be successful. Good luck.

@NoGreyMatter,
Cheers! I've cracked it, didn't know it though {although heard of author}. As to 44, Alice Cooper hit in 1973.

@gumpy01,
This question is quite trappy.The horse concerned has a race named after him.

@Ramires7,
Thank you for the clue for 44, but I'm afraid I'm not there yet. BDB from Alice Cooper suggested the film would be the 2004 winner, but I still can't find 50% of that in an episode title. Am I barking up the wrong street?

@NoGreyMatter,
Yes.Make a list of winning films from 2000 onwards,look at the Alice Cooper clue,a little bit of lateral thinking and an episode of this series will show up.It is not 50% in the way your thinking.

@NoGreyMatter,
re 25: I found this by serendipity: had just been watching a rerun of Cadfael and started thinking about other series starring Derek Jacobi. Having removed the letters for that part of the answer, though, I had to use the anagram solver for the second as it's not a series I've ever watched.

@NoGreyMatter,
On right track & Opsimath had added good further hints. When you google in episode title, answer should reveal itself.

@Ramires7,
Questions 31 and 45 have even flummoxed Google. Question 45 is a nightmare not understanding the "evil eye" bit.

@sophocles,
45. another ambiguous question, it is derived from a neopolitan word meaning to throw, but has come to mean under the spell 0f the evil eye.
