Amandeep Drall continued her rich vein of form to grab a share of the lead after the first round of the ninth leg of Hero Women's Pro Golf Tour at the Classic Golf and Country Club here on Wednesday.

Amandeep, who took the winner's cheque despite finishing second behind amateur Sneha Singh in the seventh leg and won the eighth leg last week, birdied the final hole to card one-under 71 and tie at the top with Vani Kapoor.

Vani finished almost an hour before Amandeep as play started two hours and 10 minutes late due to the morning fog.
