I would say it's an ammonite fragment

I though ammonite but the shape put me off as it is solid through.

As estwing has mentioned, it's possibly a fragment of an ammonite. Often, as in your case, the preservation of the fossil from Burton Bradstock can be quite poor, with no fine detail on the specimen. It's also likely to come from the  Bridport Sand Formation, rather than the Inferior Oolite. Neither will 'fizz'!
