Successor (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

heir

'successor' is the definition.
(I know that successor can be written as heir)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for heir that I've seen before include "One due to inherit" , "Treasured family possession" , "Expected successor" , "One hoping to succeed" , "One likely to succeed" .)

I've seen this clue in the USA Today and The Telegraph.
