APMIRI  =  IMPAIR,  HOTRAT  =  THROAT,  LWEAIH  =  AWHILE,  TRPOYS  =  SPORTY,  DLIFED  =  FIDDLE,  NYRREO  =  ORNERY   —   Giving us:  IATHTAHSRTIDNY

(Ooh!  Four of a kind.  Generally a very safe bet, especially considering what’s on the table.  It doesn’t look like Mike could possibly be beat.  Too bad he’s so open and honest.  If he kept his mouth shut he coulda got more money outta them.  Talk to the man, Jeff!

All of today’s clue words are familiar old Jumble chums.  Five of the jumbles were coming up as new though.  We’ve definitely seen “dlifed” before.  The answer letter layout was a challenging fourteen letter jumble.  I figured words two and three would be HIS HAND, which left me with ATTRTIY.  That was enough!
