Slight play on my steering rack - is this serious or can I wait for better weather?

How much should I expect to pay for a steering rack?

Requires a little bit more of a turn to move the wheels, its extremely slight, but seems to allow wheel movement at high speeds - not sure if thats down to balancig / tracking also.

its the joint at the bottom of the column that has the play in it and causes play in the steering wheel before having any effect. i wouldnt worry unless it gets bad, i once saw a corsa tha was that bad, you almost got an extra half turn of the steering wheel. lolsit with the car stationalry, and look out of the window, rock the steering wheel gently, is exessive 'rocking' (sorry for crap description) required to move wheels? if it is like a vibration you are getting at speed, this is more likely wheel balancing, car pulling to left or right usually means tracking.
