DYSPHONIA ran her best race since joining Godolphin from Australia when a commendable third in Group 3 company behind Chachamaidee at Lingfield. That form is head and shoulders above anything else on display here and this looks a straightforward opportunity for the Lohnro mare. Bezique had winning form in Listed company in Italy prior to joining Luca Cumani and should be all the better for her first run in a year behind Fury in a York handicap but Mortitia hasn't beaten a rival in her last three starts, though should still take care of the other two.
