Scotsman Jamieson's round of 65 was rounded off by three consecutive birdies as he set the target at 11 under par, and he was joined by Englishman Waring, who birdied four of his last seven holes to record a 63 and the lowest round of the day.

“We had such a long wait on 17 and 18 that I actually forgot that it was three birdies in a row," said Jamieson. "Finishing with one birdie is nice, so three is even sweeter."

“I'll just take it as it comes tomorrow, you never know with the weather forecast. I'll just try to keep doing what I've been doing and see where it takes me.”

None of the morning starters could get past overnight leader Clément Sordet of France and while the four-time Challenge Tour winner made a birdie on the 11th to lead by two, that would be his only gain of the day.

An intriguing battle then took place with South African Thomas Aiken, England's Lee Slattery, Waring and Jamieson all in a four-way tie at ten under par before the latter pair broke out of the pack.

“I had a great front nine today - it seemed to get things rolling and off to a good pace," said Aiken.

“It's interesting with the wind around here, especially on the front nine. When you get to four, five and six the wind swirls around that bowl and makes club selection tricky. If we get a lot of wind it will be tricky the next two days. I'm not saying that there hasn't been wind, early yesterday it probably got close to 20 so we'll see what the weather has got in store for us on the weekend."

“I just need to keep doing what I'm doing, keep the concentration levels up and hopefully we'll be in a good position going into the last nine on Sunday.”

Aiken is the nearest challenger to the leading pair at nine under par, two shots clear of Slattery, Scotsman Bradley Neil, and American Hunter Stewart.

Danish pair Thorbjørn Olesen and Søren Kjeldsen, two-time Major winner Martin Kaymer of Germany, Australians Adam Bland and Lucas Herbert, and French duo Sordet and Benjamin Hebert are all five shots off the lead at six under par.
