I asked the same thing a while ago.

They published a paper with the answer
https://millcomputing.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Spectre.03.pdf

see the section called “Software and compiler speculation”

Their answer seems to be a loadtr operation, that will only perform the load if the predicate is met, avoiding branching.

When I asked, they said they were still trying to decide if there was a better way.
