1. Giant Glory
2. Specialized Demo 8
3. Pivot Phoenix
4. Canyon torque
5. Scott Gambler

Budget if £3000 and am leaning towards the Gambler. Although a little heavy it's one of the only bikes at this price with Fox 40 and apparently the bike is bomb proof.

I would appreciate any thoughts on this?

The Gambler is a killer bike. Very adaptable, very fast and very fun! I work at a Scott dealer and we can source and deliver you one for a good price. PM me if you have any questions too as I owned a gambler myself!

If I had to choose I'd certainly go with the Pivot. I have one and absolutely love it. Couldn't really fault it though it does need a good shock with it. I went with the X-Fusion.

Also the Pivot's aren't hugely popular bike, so there are only two or three at the centre/track/race. You might see that as a positive as a negative. Personally I quite like it as they aren't that common and something a little different, and I don't really see any downside in performance.

Have you looked at the YT Tues Comp? Might be another to consider.
