I thought the top row is blank but not for all clues from 1 to 11?
Each clue may have a letter missing.

2d. Source is encircled? (7) Answer could be 6.

16d. Glaswegian guarding hat is about to appear in Press (7)

23a. Person making roof slabs red for one machinist (8)

27d, Run the fare away from the rabbi’s table? (7)

...'(t)hat is' = IE [rev] inside WRING = 'press'.
Question Author
Thanks ProfessorM.
1a. Do re mi ...
8a. Display is Air.

Hint on 44a and 28d please.
Still about 8 to go.
You're very nearly there (double def 'in case').
Question Author
28d could be since and then anagram?
yes, for A(i)R but, 'I omitted' = def 'letter.'
hankir ...28d ..yes!
yes, anag 'sin(c)e' + i (after M[ass]).
44a is a cut of meat (not your favourite thing I know, hankir) T + word for 'ste(e)p.'
Question Author
Thanks ProfessorM and Ros.

I had 36d ending in Y.
The grid is complete but missing the letters in 15a, 17,
and 24d, 26d.
Also the last 4 letter in down are UASI.
I thought 8dn was ground as in give ground and Hampden but not if 8ac is ar.
