A round-of-the-day 63 lifted Alexander Bjork to nine under and within a shot of the lead, with Oliver Fisher, Joost Luiten, Marcus Kinhult and Romain Langasque also in a share of third.

Beginning on the back nine, Sullivan made a fast start with three birdies in his opening five holes before cancelling out a blemish at the 15th by holing from 10 feet at the par-four first.

Sullivan birdied the next and ended a run of pars by nailing a 25-foot putt at the eighth to move top of the leaderboard ahead of Kinhult, who closed his second-round 65 with a penultimate-hole bogey.
