The first one is (I think) ARCHETYPE. Anagram of reach + type (syn of sort).

The second one is ETON. Extra-terrestial + on.

Thanks Terry. THat helps me with the "odds on" clue which I guess is SPRAY.

The college one is now ?T?N which looks more like ETON, but cant get the reference to film showing

The film is ET (exta-terrestial).

It,s SPRAY because "starting price" =SP +RAY (a shaft of light) = spray (a jet of fluid or vapour).

Thanks once again Terry. Now see the ETON connection.
