Shining or Horsfield's Bronze-cuckoo?

Hello again.

Trying to work out what this is.

Tried to use Bushpeas photos, Google Photos and Graeme Chapman's site.

Graemes' gave explantation of differences, but, still not sure.

Didn't have a decent photo of it's eye.

Appreciate the help.

It was taken at Golds Scrub Lane, Lake Samsonvale, Mount Samson, Qld.

My gut says Horsefields. 

Black line on the side of the face looks more like Horsefields, but I'm no expert - only seen these species a couple of times. 

Nice spot
