5-4 to play

White - Pips 139 (-23)

Black - Pips 162 (+23)
Black to Play 5-4
Created with Diagram Builder

Hitting play:
15 shots at 4pt from the bar + [12 32 52 16] = 23 shots but 2 blots
Covering play:
20 directs + [22 31 51] = 26 shots but 1 blot

To state the obvious, we are comfortably behind in the race, so who cares about extra hits?

Any other considerations regarding choosing the best play here?

What would you play and why?
