Buck bet on pole dancing (8)


I believe the answer is:


'buck' is the definition.

'bet on pole dancing' is the wordplay.
'bet on' becomes 'ante' (anteing is a kind of betting on).
'dancing' is an anagram indicator.
'pole' anagrammed gives 'lope'.

(Other definitions for antelope that I've seen before include "One leapt badly on the graceful animal" , "Reebok perhaps" , "One ruminating" , "Springbok or gnu?" , "fast buck, perhaps?" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
