Comments on the clue
1.Good anagram idea
2.Anagram fodder rather telegraphed
3.Mostly good, but "do" seems unnecessary in the surface reading
Comments on the competition
9 is a simple clue wih a nice sense of humour, unlike 2 for instance which gives a rather unconvincing surface reading (even if its complex structure is sound). There are many in between these extremes, but few are at all interesting, alas.
