Holds back (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

restrains

'holds back' is the definition.
('restrain' can be a synonym of 'hold back')

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for restrains that I've seen before include "Sister ran (anag.)" , "Keeps in check" , "Keeps back" , "Keeps under control or within limits" .)
