IVAN Allan can go into the Christmas period with another winner under his belt, this time from Active King in the night's final race at Happy Valley. Allan has been in glorious form, sending out a treble at Sha Tin on Saturday. Active King was a good course-and-distance winner last season and shaped very encouragingly on his reappearance down the straight 1,000-metre track. With Basil Marcus now replacing the unfashionable Frankie F.C. Lor, Active King is a must for all last race quinellas. The dangers could well come from topweight Galway and David Oughton's improving Classabove. Galway ran a top race behind Sound Print and River Verdon over course and distance two starts back. Classabove just gets better and better. His last-start win over All-Winners is working out well.
