Each clue contains a superfluous word to be removed before solving. The first or last letter of the superfluous word should be appropriately outside the grid at the beginning or end of the solution. The question can now be read clockwise and should be answered ignoring possible bonuses.

Good morning, happy to have got answers for all but four clues ( and without finding the superfluous words!). Answers with parsing for the following would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

ACROSS:
27 Maybe Aston defends old Roman dress standards (7) : ??????A

DOWN:
18 God chops parts of garish insects (8) : ?H?R????
21 Wild vervet monkeys mark out channel (3,3) : ?K?O?E
23 Port director finished cake (5) : ????R
