Exploit of female put away (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

feat

Here is my best explanation:

'exploit' is the definition.

('feat' can be a synonym of 'exploit')

'female put away' is the subsidiary indication.

'female' becomes 'f' (abbreviation).

'put away' becomes 'eat' (I've seen this in other clues**).

'f'+'eat'='feat'

'of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for feat that I've seen before include "remarkable achievement", "Deed; achievement", "Great achievement", "Achievement needing skill, strength, etc.", "An achievement", "Notable act", "Accomplishment", "Courageous act", "Remarkable achievement of fate" and "Achievement of fate".)
