Kapur carded a bogey-free 68 with three birdies, all between 10th and 12th, while Chowrasia had two birdies and two bogeys for his 71. Chowrasia had two birdies on second and fourth and bogeyed fifth and 15th holes.

Both Kapur and Chowrasia were tied 13th at the midway stage.

Also making the cut was Gaganjeet Bhullar (73-70), while Jeev Milkha Singh (73-75) collapsed in second round to miss the cut.

Bradley Dredge birdied four out of his last six holes at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort to open up a four-stroke lead at the halfway mark.

The 41-year-old Welshman, who is slowly regaining his form after an injury-ravaged 2013, birdied the 13th, 15th, 16th and 18th holes for three-under par round of 68 to move to eight under par, with Englishman Simon Wakefield (67) being his nearest rival on four-under par.

Dredge won his last title in 2006 at the Omega European Masters and is in 182nd place in the Race to Dubai.

Dredge's main rivals will be Thomas Björn (73) and Thorbjørn Olesen (70), who are tied for third position on three-under par, along with Scotland's David Drysdale and England's Garrick Porteous, both of whom signed for rounds of 68.
