Overnight leader Paul Waring stumbled to an even-par 71, ending in a three-way tie for third place at 16-under with Stephen Gallacher (66) and Bernd Wiesberger (67).

Sharing sixth place one shot further back were Henne Otto (70) and Jamie Donaldson.

Ross Fisher (66), Robert-Jan Derksen (66), Chris Doak (70), Pablo Larrazabal (70) and Simon Thornton (71) knotted for eighth at 14-under.
