Default sizing neutral for 125 amp sub-panel

Is there any code on sizing neutrals? I am feeding a sub panel with a 125 amp breaker, #2 THHN. Length is 135'.

The only requirement is that the neutral not be smaller than the equipment grounding conductor. Calculate the neutral size and go from there.
