Fraser had a chip-in birdie on the sixth hole in a bogey-free round that left him at 11 under.

Molinari is trying to capture his national tournament for the second time, having won in Milan in 2006. He became a member of the Golf Club Torino when he was 8 years old.

Fraser says he faces a tough closing round with Molinari just one shot behind and the crowd pulling for him. But, he adds, he will have to play his game and "try and spoil the party, I suppose."
