      It is very villain specific but I'd say generally no because you have the possibility of a river-bet to contend with.

      I'd bet/fold turn and check the river hoping that villain is content to showdown ace-high/99+ by checking behind.

      Either you b/f or call with very good odds, or c/f and only call with good odds. But not because you have A high.
      Against specific opponents a c/r turn is also possible, but i wouldn´t do it very often on that limit. :)

      Best regards,
