Those yet to receive an official handicap mark have shown nothing as yet and KEEP IT DARK comes out best of the remainder. He wasn't far away when fourth at Wolverhampton last time and gets the token vote. Quan hasn't looked like winning so far though there's always the chance he'll take to the Fibresand better than Sweet Grace and Queen Cassiopeia have. Summer Sun could turn out best of the rest in a really poor maiden.
