Upbringing having run true to form? (7)


I believe the answer is:


'upbringing' is the definition.
(nurture is a kind of upbringing)

'run true to form?' is the wordplay.
'to form?' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen 'formed' mean this).
'runtrue' is an anagram of 'NURTURE'.

'having' is the link.

(Other definitions for nurture that I've seen before include "Train" , "Care for during upbringing" , "Training" , "Foster, feed" , "Cherish (an ambition)" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
