Roger Varian's Lope De Vega colt made a big impression when making a winning debut at Yarmouth at the end of June and only enhanced his reputation when a highly creditable fourth behind leading juvenile Ivawood in Newmarket's July Stakes.
Stepped up to seven furlongs on an easier surface for Denford Stud Stakes, Belardo swept his rivals aside to leave connections dreaming of next year's Classics.
Ted Voute, racing manager for owner Prince Faisal, said: "We were delighted with him and he couldn't have done any more.
"I don't think Hawkesbury (runner-up) ran up to his best, which is a shame, but our horse was the winner on the day and it was a lovely performance.
"It's always a sign of a class horse when they can handle any sort of ground and he seems to be pretty adaptable. Andrea (Atzeni) adores the horse and he was as delighted as anyone in the winner's enclosure.
"He has plenty of entries, but in an ideal world I think the Champagne Stakes (September 13) is probably his most likely next target. If he needs a bit more time, then we'll have a rethink, but Doncaster is probably where he's heading.
"He's an exciting horse and you'd like to think he could end up in the 2000 Guineas. That's a long way off at this stage, but that has to be the dream.
"He's a lovely moving horse and his form stacks up, so it's exciting."
