My mate is in a loose ring French link snaffle, cavasson nose band, a flash makes no difference. She is constantly chewing/mouthing the bit and fighting against me. Any help appreciated

I would change the cheek piece to an eggbutt or a hanging cheek, this will keep the bit stiller in her mouth.

When you say she is fighting against you, what do you mean? Is she getting strong?

Assuming all the usual checks have been done you could try something with more stability in her mouth. A mullen mouth or a hanging cheek. It sounds like she is looking for a contact but can't find one with such a 'mobile' bit.

forgot to mention all checks been done. She is fine jumping and not had a flat lesson as been working on jumping.
Tried her in a eggbutt tonight with not much change. She chews the bit, and hangs. She finds flat work hard and is always evading. Have a flat lesson booked end of the week.
