Need help choosing fast commuter bike

I am after changing my current 10 yr old hybrid for something a little quicker for my 20 mile tarmac daily commute. Audax bikes seem to fit the bill but are very expensive, no doubt because they are for a minority market. My LBS doesn't stock them so I would have to probably buy online.
Can anyone recommend something suitable for a £500 budget.
My wish list is
Tyres upto 700 x 28c
Full mudguards
Braze ons for panniers
Dependable group set
Drop handlebars
No suspension
As a guide for comparison, the nearest to this wish list I have seen is probably the Ribble winter trainer on a Sora groupset. Any others worth considering?
 
Condor Fratello meets most, if not all, your requirements but for a little more than your budget if you can stretch it (£549) It looks good in yellow too IMHO.

Tifosi CK7 with Sora groupset, only problem is it's £699. Sorry, best I could think of.
