Crossword Genius

Some claim a gin expands figure (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

imagine

Here is my best explanation:

'figure' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'some claim a gin expands' is the subsidiary indication.

'some' indicates a hidden word (some of the parts of the word are used).

'imagine' is hidden in the letters of 'claim a gin expands'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for imagine that I've seen before include "Number one", "Picture mentally", "Enigma, I? (anag)", "that Lennon composed", "Fancy - Lennon song", "Form a mental picture", "Suspect", "Dream up", "Conceive; fancy" and "Form a mental image in the mind".)
