Common x Heath Spotted Orchid in North Leicestershire?

Hi all, I took this photo last weekend at a private site in North Leicestershire and I just wondered what people think of the ID of the plant?
Personally I think it is a Common x Heath Spotted hybrid, but it might also be a Heath x Southern Marsh hybrid.
Relating to the plant, it had no spots on the leaves and occurred on boggy ground, but was part of an old meadow dated back 300 years!
Any help with the ID would be helpful?
