Seven Scots beat the cut to the leading 50 and ties in the PGA Europro Tour event over the Burhill Golf Club new course in Surrey - but it was a close-run thing for Michael Stewart, who slumped from a 66 to a 78, and the Paul Lawrie Golf Centre pair of Craig Lawrie and Kris Nicol.
Stewart, from Ayrshire, had two double bogeys and a bogey at the 17th in an inward 43 for a two-round total of level par 144.
Craig Lawrie had a pair of 72s to make on the limit mark, returning 16 pars, one birdie and one bogey.
Nicol had five birdies in a second-round 70, a score that was four better than on the opening day, and the Fraserburgh needed the last two birdies, at the 17th and 18th, to make it through on 144 with nothing to spare.
Best placed Scot in tied 13th position is Jordan McColl (Kingsbarns Pro Academy) with 71 and 69 for 140 - six behind the English leader Greg Payne (Chobham) who has scored 64-70 for 134.
Callum Macaulay (Tulliallan) is the second-best Scot with a pair of 71s for 142 and a share of 22nd place.
Neil Fenwick (Dunbar) (71-72) and Fraser Moore (Glenbervie) (71-72) qualified in joint 34th place on 143.
All three Saltman brothers - Elliot 147, Lloyd 154 and Zack (156) - all missed the cut.
Comrie's Wallace Booth, now attached to Eastwood Golf Club, was course to beat the cut by one shot until he bogeyed the 14th, double-bogeyed the 15th and bogeyed the 17th - four shots dropped over the span of four holes. He came home in 40 for a 75 and a 147 total, three shots over the cut mark.
