Delhi golfer Vani Kapoor set herself up for her third title in four starts on the Hero WPGT Tour as she moved into the sole lead at the end of the second round of the eighth leg of the Tour at the Clover Greens here on Thursday.

Returning from her trip to Thailand for the Ladies European Tour event, the dimunitive Vani shot an even par 71 to get one-under 141 and one shot ahead of amateur Ankita Kedlaya, who also shot a 71.

Overnight leader Gaurika Bishnoi, who also heads the Hero Order of Merit slipped to 73 after a bogey start and is also tied-second, one behind Vani.  Virat Kohli Holidays In New York Ahead Of Hectic Season
