England's Richard Finch remains in contention after the second round of the European Tour Qualifying School in Spain.
The 36-year-old from Hull, who lay joint second after Sunday's first round, sits three shots off the lead after a score of 71 on day two of six in Girona, where the top 25 and ties will earn a place on the 2014 Race to Dubai.
Finch started his round well before three bogeys on the back nine left him on seven under par in a five-way tie for third alongside Scotland's Alistair Forsyth, South African Brandon Stone, Sweden's Jens Fahrbring and Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark.
American John Hahn leads after matching his first-round 66 with another on Monday over the Stadium Course at PGA Catalunya Resort to go 10 under par.
Two shots further back is Sweden's Jens Dantorp, who - despite a double bogey on the 15th - managed to add 68 on the Tour Course to his opening 66.
Overnight leader Edouard Espana of France suffered a tough time on the front nine, recording three bogeys and a double bogey on the fifth, but he progressed with three birdies on the back nine to record a score of 74 and sits four shots off the lead.
Alongside Espana on six under par are English trio Daniel Brooks, Oliver Wilson and Adam Gee ahead of Tuesday's third round of six.
