Hounds struggling in river (6)


I believe the answer is:


'river' is the definition.
(I know that Hudson is a river)

'hounds struggling' is the wordplay.
'struggling' indicates an anagram.
'hounds' anagrammed gives 'HUDSON'.

'in' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for hudson that I've seen before include "New York river; Upstairs/ Downstairs butler" , "American banker" , "Rock -, - bay" , "River in New York city" , "Major inland sea of NE Canada - . . . . . . Bay" .)
