Spot on former partner initially attracting court (5)


I believe the answer is:


'spot on' is the definition.
(spot on means exactly right)

'former partner initially attracting court' is the wordplay.
'former partner' becomes 'ex' (an ex-partner).
'initially' indicates taking the first letters.
'court' becomes 'ct' (abbreviation used in road names).
The first letter of 'attracting' is 'a'.

(Other definitions for exact that I've seen before include "Demand and obtain" , "Precise - demand" , "Precise and strictly correct" , "Not approximate; inflict (revenge) on someone" , "totally accurate" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
