Race road bike - £1.5k

Hi

I am looking for a good race road bike and my budget is £1,500.

I am quite tall at 6'4, think I will need an XL.

My knowledge of bikes is limited. I currently have a Boardman Race, but it is a bit small but I like the feel of it.

I have a Specialized Allez which is a bit sedate, I guess it is more of a endurance road bike.

I prefer going out for a couple of hours and going as quick as I can.

Any advice appreciated.

Cheers

Have you done your own research and have a short list...
Guessing not so will start you off with this (I’m a SRAM fan), bonus of no horrid press fit bottom bracket like many carbon road bikes these days. Size guide indeed suggests XL for your height

but wait a week to see if PX have a Black Friday sale (they have in the past, these Covid times with very limited stocks may be rather different)

Ok but be careful going for XL I am 6ft 3ins and 58cm/L is much better fit than XL. I had an Allez yonks ago and wouldn't say its endurance set up, bit racier for me.
My money would go on this, nice and light for the cash
