England's Holly Clyburn lost her lead at the Australian Ladies Classic after shooting a third round of 74.

She led by two shots going into the third day but ended up five shots off leader Celine Boutier, who carded a five-under 67 to move to 11 under.

On a day of heavy tropical downpours, Clyburn's round included a double bogey, four bogeys and four birdies.

"Celine played fantastic. I didn't expect her to go out and shoot 67 in those conditions," said Clyburn.

"It was her day. I don't think I've ever experienced rain like that and then, all of a sudden, been so hot at the same time.

"I thought the course did well considering how much rain was getting thrown down."

England's Florentyna Parker is 10th on two under.
