Need some advice choosing a £600 hardtail

Hey all,
I'm looking to buy a new mountain bike with a budget of about £600 (€800). I will be mainly riding a mixture of cross-country and trails. I'm looking to get the most for my money in terms of spec, so for this price this seems to involve staying away from the big brands.
Currently the 3 bikes I am trying to decide between are the:
Voodoo Bizango 29 http://www.halfords.com/cycling/bikes/m ... ntain-bike
Canyon Al 4.9 https://www.canyon.com/en-fr/mtb/grand- ... l-4-9.html
Radon ZR Team 29 7.0 http://www.radon-bikes.de/en/bikes-2016 ... team-29-70
They all seem to have fairly similar specs with 100mm or 120mm air forks and Shimano Deore drivetrains. The Voodoo has loads of great reviews but I cannot find much about the others so any advice would be really helpful.

    Here is a recent review of the New Bizango, I think it would be a great option out of the 3 listed. In fact it won best hardtail under £750 in MBR.

    Bizango and Canyon are great bikes, Bizango would sway it for me, have you considered 2nd hand? for £600 you can get a decent bike for that
    Bikes:
    2013 Mondraker Dune XR - XX1 XO1 Hope, Easton Carbon, Fox
    Voodoo Bizango XT - Hope, Pikes, Mavic
