By Cable Bay out of Blissamore. He is a half brother to Cornelia, a three times winner in Denmark and to Drumnadrochit who won twice in Athens in February 2020.

He is a lovely put together horse and has a particularly nice balance when he canters.

After running consistently Whitwell won his first race at Ripon in June 2021 when he took the Ladies' Derby Handicap ridden by Serena Brotherton.
