Fork upgrade advice

Hi all,

Took up cycling about two years ago and bought a GT Aggressor XC2. Started out just on cycle paths, forest fire roads and green trails etc. As I got better I moved on to single track and blue / red routes. As my riding has progressed in terms of terrain and conditions I have up graded the seat post, pedals and had a new bottom bracket when the original wore out. Now I have had enough of the SR Suntour XCR fork seizing in the wet and its time for an upgrade.

My question is what should I go for? I have a budget of £250-300. It will be used for natural single track and trail centre blue / red routes. I was thinking 100-120 travel so to not stress the frame to much? Have been told rock shox are a good bet, reliable and easy to service? Marzocchi also seem to be well priced but have been told they are harder to service and get parts for?

    Reba. If you can rct3, otherwise an rlt variant. Merlin should have something to suit.
