I believe your last strong link, (3)a2 = (3)a7 is incorrect since (3)a1 is still present. Your idea is usable, though, say:
1. (2)a4 == (3)f6 - (3=6)f1 - d3 = (6-2)h3 = (2)h7 => -2a7

Hi rwm, you are right. Thanks for spotting...
I ignored 3a1 because it is eliminated by the X-wing (3)ag27. I should have written
(2)a4==(3)f6-(3=6)f1-a1=(6-3)a2=g2-g7=(3)a7 =>-2a7
... but your path is shorter.
