Del Moral the frontrunner in Girona

Carlos Del Moral continued to thrive after a nine-under-par round of 63 saw him storm into a one-stroke lead at the European Tour Qualifying School at PGA Catalunya Resort.

That continued a fine run of form at this event, which has seen the Valencia player claim his card at the Spain venue in three of the past five seasons, and he is once again ideally placed at 14 under to claim a Race to Dubai berth for next season.

Del Moral sunk seven birdies and an eagle on day four and with the final 36 holes set to be played on the same course, the Spaniard is clearly looking forward to the task at hand and to continuing the form that has seen him hurtle once again into contention for a European Tour card in Girona.

He said: "My play at this event is something that I have never understood as patience isn't one of my best qualities, so it doesn't make a lot of sense that I play really good Q-Schools because you need a lot of that for six rounds of golf.

"I've just been staying really calm, trying to focus on every shot and today felt a lot freer, so I'm really happy and I'll try to do more of the same.

"I'm just going to try and do the same, to stay very level as there are so many emotions out here. You don't want to go too up and down, up and down because then you will go mad. You just need to stay low key for every shot."

One stroke adrift of the leading Spaniard are England's Daniel Brooks and Fabrizio Zanotti of Paraguay, who both went low on day four after rounds of 66 and 68 respectively.

They are one ahead of a further trio of talent, with overnight leader James Morrison (70) alongside first-round pace-setter Edouard Espana (67) and two-time European Tour winner Patrik Sjoland (67) in a tie for fourth.
