Dodt is eight-under for the tournament after blustery conditions made scoring more difficult on day two.

Wang Jeung-hun, who won his maiden European Tour title last weekend in Morocco, moved up to second by matching Dodt's 70.

Nicolas Colsaerts and Siddikur Rahman are in a tie for third on four-under.
