Fixed my errors and am now not sure of:

@Lou57,
"Stakes" seems more appropriate but the "board" clue would need to refer to "table" or bookies "odds board"....or possibly "StakeS"...SS refering to "steamship".

@Lou57,
Hi Lou57

All your questions have been previously answered here, pays to check the threads first before you post. Laughing

Fresco's submissions are correct.

17d = STAKES.

Good luck

@Dutchy,
I did check the threads and did not find the answers!
There are far too many headings to look through, eg. lovatts, colossus, big, mega, stinker, holiday, mega, stinker, cryptic, giant cryptic etc.etc.
If you don't want to answer the questions, then don't!
