Extracts work for a feeble youth (7)


I believe the answer is:


'a feeble youth' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'extracts work' is the wordplay.
'extracts' becomes 'milks' (milking is a kind of extracting).
'work' becomes 'op' (common abbreviation for 'opus').

'for' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for milksop that I've seen before include "Weakling" , "He shrinks from" , "Feeble male" , "Unassertive male person" , "soft fellow" .)

I've seen this clue in The Irish Independent.
