King hates fancy red suit (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

hearts

Here is my best explanation:

'red suit' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'king hates fancy' is the subsidiary indication.

'king' becomes 'r' (r is abbreviation for rex).

'fancy' indicates anagramming the letters.

'r'+'hates'='rhates'

'rhates' is an anagram of 'hearts'.

(Other definitions for hearts that I've seen before include "Scots club nickname; suit", "Major suit at cards", "Central parts", "Centres", "Suit for vital organs", "See 23", "Vital suit", "Vital organs in the pack", "Suit of cards" and "Playing-card suit".)
