New Zealand golfer Cathryn Bristow remains firmly in the hunt for a Ladies European Tour card in 2013 but Emily Perry's hopes have been dashed in Marrakech.

Bristow remains inside the top 30 after carding a one-under par 71 in the fourth round of the final qualifying event in Morocco, to be five-under for the tournament and in a five-way share of 29th place.

The top 30 players and ties after tomorrow's fifth and final round will earn full playing rights for next year, and Bristow is in need of fulltime employment after missing out at LPGA Tour Q-school last month.

The Auckland lefthander made an inauspicious start to her fourth round at the Al Maaden Golf Resort, carding a double bogey seven at the par-five fourth, but was blemish-free from that point on while nailing three birdies.

The news was not so good for Perry, however, whose one-under 71 was not good enough to see her through to tomorrow's final round.

The top 60 players and ties after four rounds play the final 18 holes, but Perry, the former New Zealand amateur representative who has only just turned pro, missed the cut by one shot.

She finished tied for 67th with an even-par total of 288 after rounds of 70, 74, 73 and 71.
