Which Sunbird? Tanzania

All the same bird taken is a hotel's garden in the Marangu area.

Would appreciate some ideas re ID.
Have looked at Amethyst, Marico and Beautiful as possibilities based on range and appearance?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Juvenile marico would be my best guess (based on the mottling on the breast), but it's certainly a guess...

That would be my guess, too.
