BOMBER
(5+3)*100+25+10/10=826
ESTIMABLE (307s didn't see -ABLE early enough he said sheepishly...)

1. shinier
2. runny
3. 3x100+7x2-1=313
4. (a risky) culcates
5. misfeeds
6. (100+4)x8+25+4=861 (1 off)
7. pokier
8. (5+3)x100+25+10/10=826
9. X steamible (34.3s)

Kicking myself with 'estimable' - at least you got there, Mike!

Louise, I don't think either CULCATE/S or MISFEED/S are listed, though you and Mike certainly bested me on 826.

1. SHINIER
2. RUNNY
3. 313 = 3*100 + 2*7 - 1
4. SELECT
5. DEMISES
6. one off: 863 = (100+25)*7 - 8 - 4
7. BOMBER
8. one off: 825 = (25*100-10-10-5)/3
9. ESTIMABLE - 1.8s

Oh, GAUCHE, very nice! Nice work to get the 826, Mike and Louise -- like Sam, I missed it.

I'm afraid Sam is correct about CULCATES and MISFEEDS. I'd have chanced MISFEEDS if I saw it within time (I spotted it a little afterwards, and was surprised that the Macquarie did not list it).
