Flycatcher ID, Dalat, Vietnam

Hello,

Two similar flycatchers for comparison.
I believe that the second one is a Verditer Flycatcher. As for the first one I'm not sure if also Verditer or Pale Blue.
What do you think?

THanks
Luis

I agree with Andy, the red iris and slight fork to the tail are good indicators. Not sure I can see enough detail in the second image to suggest an ID.
