Run after Charles East (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

chase

Here is my best explanation:

'run after' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'charles east' is the subsidiary indication.

'charles' becomes 'chas' (shortened form).

'east' becomes 'e' ('E' can be a synonym of 'east').

'chas'+'e'='chase'

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for chase that I've seen before include "Hurry", "groove", "Pursue; decorate (metal) by engraving", "Pursue, run after", "Engrave - hunt - pursue", "Composed type accommodated in this", "Follow", "pursuit?", "Pursue - engrave" and "trail".)
