Spoils of war? (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

mars

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'spoils' is the first definition.

('mar' can be a synonym of 'spoil')

'war?' is the second definition.

(thesaurus)

'of' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for mars that I've seen before include "Ruins", "world", "The Red Planet", "Next planet out", "blights", "part of suite", "Injures - god of war", "Spoils - heavenly body", "RS [RED STAR] (not technically)" and "one associated with war".)
