11A Arm number, verbal fight follows (8). I think I have E-N-A--- but I can't find a likely word to fit, so have I got one of my other clues wrong.

Hopefully the answer will help with 6D Horse with pack yet to start (6) _I___

Ideas please - thanks

Good morning, Deekay.

TENTACLE [Ten + tackle - yes, I know, but I don't compile them!]

FILLY [pack + 'y' - the start of yet]

Best wishes,

Caravaggio

Hi Caravaggio

Thanks for that - very helpful. But it means that I obviously have 3D wrong, 'Give orders for shoddy goods to be put in cubes' (7). I thought it was DIRECTS for 'giving orders' made up of DICE for cubes and RTS for return to sender, but your reply suggests that the fourth letter is not E but T. (i.e. _I_T_T_) Help please!

Hi Deekay,

It's a pleasure! DICTATE - DIC[TAT]E. I hope one of us wins the Blu-Ray player...

Have a good day,

Caravaggio

Thanks Caravaggio. I think my answer 'directs' is a better one that the crossword's compiler!!
