Bell Rock got put up 5lb for that and ran very well of his revised rating of 103 when sixth of 23 to Dark Vision in the Royal Hunt Cup over a mile at Ascot.

After being held-up in mid-division, he made good headway to chase the leaders two from home before keeping on at the one pace to be beaten 6 1/2 lengths.

Bell Rock has since finished a solid staying of five length third of 18 to Maydanny over 1m at Goodwood off the same rating.
