Hmmmm...from those link photos, I'd lean towards the first 2 or 3. I think you're best bet if you want to narrow this down further, is to look at the published descriptions of these species and check the vegetative characteristics. You can see in the background of your first shot that it has long thin pseudobulbs that are fairly closely spaced on the rhizome. The leaves are lanceolate too. That might count out some from your list.

Will check myself if I get a chance but this site is a time hoover and life must go on!

I'd say this is almost certainly a Coelogyne species but there are a few with flesh pink flowers and this one's in too bad shape to say for certain which it is.
