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'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for heroic that I've seen before include "Showing no fear in the face of extreme difficulty", "Showing extreme courage", "Epic", "Surpassing the ordinary, in courage say", "Very brave and noble", "Supremely courageous and brave", "larger than life", "Superhuman (efforts)", "lion-hearted" and "Very courageous".)
