I assume that here the "pedwar" is too far from the "punt", and so doesn't take the feminine form. It is only IMMEDIATELY in front of the "punt" that it changes? Are there any exceptions?

No, it's "Pedwar" here because it's not "Four pounds" it's "Four tens" and "Deg" is masculine.

Thank you. I understand. It takes the gender of the noun it's multiplying.
