After awful experience Dad takes on new role extremely quickly (4,3,7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hell for leather

Here is my best explanation:

'extremely quickly' is the definition.

'after awful experience dad takes on new role' is the subsidiary indication.

'after' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'awful experience' becomes 'hell'.

'dad' becomes 'father' (**).

'takes on' indicates putting letters inside.

'new' indicates an anagram.

'role' with letters rearranged gives 'orle'.

'father' placed around 'orle' is 'forleather'.

'hell' next to 'forleather' is 'hellforleather'.
