Place for raising some of the quintuplets (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

put

Here is my best explanation:

'place' is the definition.

('put' can be a synonym of 'place')

'raising some of the quintuplets' is the subsidiary indication.

'raising' is a reversal indicator.

'some of' indicates a hidden word.

'tup' is hidden within 'quintuplets'.

'tup' backwards is 'put'.

'for' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Irish Times

(Other definitions for put that I've seen before include "Place in a position", "Place, lay", "Placed", "Set (in place)" and "Place in a location".)
