Boast made by head of chorus line (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

crow

Here is my best explanation:

'boast' is the definition.

(crow is a kind of boast)

'head of chorus line' is the subsidiary indication.

'head of' indicates taking the first letters.

'line' becomes 'row' (row is a kind of line).

The initial letter of 'chorus' is 'c'.

'c'+'row'='crow'

'made by' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for crow that I've seen before include "Black bird with raucous call", "Bird - birdcall", "'As the - - flies'", "Express gleeful triumph", "Make sound of cock - bird", "Boast, swagger, triumph", "Boast; bird", "Brag; carrion bird", "Native American -- bird" and "Make sounds of pleasure as a baby does - or a bird".)
