An attempt to embarrass (5)


I believe the answer is:


'embarrass' is the definition.
(I know that embarrass can be written as abash)

'an attempt' is the wordplay.
'an' becomes 'a'.
'attempt' becomes 'bash' (I've seen this before).

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for abash that I've seen before include "Strike with embarrassment" , "Affront" , "Rattle" , "disgrace" , "Embarrass" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
