Klara Spilkova, 18, shot a round of 66 today to join overnight leaders Caroline Masson and Ashleigh Simon at the top of the leaderboard, all three now 12 under for the tournament.

"It was pretty good today," said Spilkova on the Ladies' European Tour website. "I really like the course. I enjoy the views and the greens are very good. I like the fairways to be a bit hard and the drivers run.

"I really want to win because it's going to be my first and it would be something special."

Masson and Simon had fired 63s yesterday, but had to settle for 69s today, with Solheim Cup hopeful Masson missing out on sole ownership of first place when she bogeyed the 18th.

"I'm not very happy about my finish, obviously," Masson said. "The only dropped shot today, on 18, I three-putted and that felt a bit unnecessary.

"I made a good save on 17 after I hit it in the water, so I hit some great shots today but ended up in a bad lie here or there. I couldn't get them as close as yesterday but that's always what you expect when you play the next day, because your expectations are pretty high.

"I think I managed pretty well apart from 18. I'm still in the lead so I think it was a good two days."

The trio sit one shot clear of Bree Arthur, who also had a 66 today.

Charley Hull is two shots off the lead, tied for fifth along with Marion Ricordeau, while a four-way tie for seventh between Karrie Webb, Christina Kim, Ann-Kathrin Lindner and Kylie Walker completes the top 10.

Woods, who had been four off the lead overnight, could not match her 67 of yesterday as she went round in 71, with two bogeys on the opening nine.
