It looks a bit like Dauntless to me, but I'm a guesser, not an expert.

Your iris looks more like Indian Chief than Dauntless to me. Does it have a very thin wire rim of darker purple on the standards? That's a notable feature of Indian Chief.

Thank you for your replies - great to narrow it down :-) - I looked on another picture (they are very big files - so could zoom in) and it does appear they have a slightly darker purple rim on the standards.
