Steve Webster holds a one-shot lead after the second round of the Made In Denmark, where Paul Dunne and Marc Warren are well placed.
Webster, who last won on the European Tour in 2007, carded a one-under 70 in Farsø, after an opening 64, to move to eight-under par and lie one clear of four players one off the clubhouse lead.
The two-time European Tour winner, who almost didn't play this week due to his grandmother having had a fall at the weekend, opened his second round with 11 consecutive pars before making a birdies at the 12th and 14th, before the Englishman finished his round with a disappointing bogey at the last.
Warren, who missed nine cuts in a row on the European Tour prior to this week, followed a level-par 71 on Thursday with a fantastic seven-under 64 to surge into contention.
Dunne joins Warren on the same mark following a three-under 68, which included five birdies and two bogeys, in testing conditions at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort.
India's S.S.P. Chawrasia posted a blemish-free 68 in his second round to also finish at seven-under which is where England's David Horsey finished after a second round four-under 67.
Lasse Jensen lies two shots off Webster's lead after two-under 69 which saw the Dane mix four birdies with two bogeys, including a gain at the closing hole.
Soren Kjeldsen posted a battling second round three-under 68 to finish the day at five-under and fellow home favourites Thorbjorn Olesen and Lucas Bjerregaard are in contention at four-under despite rounds of 71 and 72 respectively.
Two-time major winner Martin Kaymer lies six shots off the pace after a level-par 71 while fellow countryman and last week's Paul Lawrie Match Play winner Marcel Siem is also at the same score after a three-over 74.
European Ryder Cup captain Thomas Bjorn, who is competing in his 500th European Tour event, made four birdies over his back nine on Friday to finish the second round at one-under and successfully make the cut.
Among the notable names to miss the cut were Belgium's Thomas Pieters who followed an opening three-under 74 with a one-under 70 to finish at two-over while fellow former European Ryder Cup players Peter Hanson and Stephen Gallacher finished at four-over and eight-over respectively.
