The 2010 champion Melissa Reid from England completed a round of two under 71 while Australian Sarah Kemp signed for a 75 to join Gwladys Nocera, Pernilla Lindberg and Klara Spilkova on level par overall. Marjet van der Graaff from the Netherlands and Becky Brewerton of Wales are at one over in a tie for 10th.

The third round begins at 11am with a two-tee start to get back on schedule. The leading trio, Croce, Boeljon and Luna, tees off at the first hole at 12:55.
