Most of the hard work was done by Jim Michael, but (75+9)*(7+100/25)-50 the solution in R3.

PLUSHIE in R8.

Oh man...Lewis is now the next Dougie Mackay...falling at the last hurdle!! :( :( :( However, if there's one good thing that came out of all this, Sarah did apologise for that and not to mention Lewis, just like Dougie took his defeat in his stride. "One life too many", nah not really, you genuinely played well especially with the 4 Large, and I really hope he goes into the Finals in December! We'll only know in five months time!

PLUSHIE to beat SLEIGH.

4th Numbers Alt.: 100 + 75 - 10 - 10 - 9 (was somewhat surprised neither of them got spot-on here, but then again, I wasn't under the studio lights).

As a former aquarium owner, was quite surprised in the ABATE round to find that BETTA is apparently no good.

MIXITES for a R12 alt.
Slightly easier R14 alt.: (9 * 4) + 10 + 100
