Announced "Oh, I see, chasing that woman is daring" (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

heroic

Here is my best explanation:

'is daring' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'announced oh i see chasing that woman' is the subsidiary indication.

'announced' shows a homophone (sound like).

'see' becomes 'c' (the word for the letter, according to Chambers).

'chasing' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'that woman' becomes 'her' (I've seen this before**).

'oh' sounds like 'o'.

'o'+'i'+'c'='oic'

'oic' after 'her' is 'heroic'.

(Other definitions for heroic that I've seen before include "Showing no fear in the face of extreme difficulty", "Courageous - daring", "Very courageous", "Very brave and noble", "Imposing or impressive: very courageous", "lion-hearted", "Of deed or person, very brave", "Like a brave man", "Valiant, courageous" and "Superhuman (efforts)".)
