Clearly different to apricaria, but it would be interesting to know what features separate this bird from Pacific Golden Plover in this plumage.

The white super stopping at the breast sides as opposed to continuing into the flanks, the greyish toned mantle and the light build.I saw this bird again today (along with plenty of twitchers!) and the underwing, call and primary projection were all clinched for American GP.
