clues >

9a. Gosh, this the result of shelling? (6)
44a. Classy line European has in mind - this running on it? (5,6)
49a. Grandma Moses is partial to a book. (4)
56a. End in sight, dear old fruit! (7)
43d. Raise figure, as chicken-feed? (8)

I would add, "amos" is hidden in the clue for 49a, but I dont have a better explanation than that.

56a. End in sight, dear old fruit! (7)

This could be ... T (end letter of 'sight') + ANGEL ('dear', term of endearment) + O (abbreviation for 'old') making, as you have, TANGELO.

Many thanks for all your replies.
The last ones I am unsure of are 33A- Flip Over Lid?
and 50A- Rigatoni?
Thank you in anticipation...
