      You can't get value just from one part of his range, you need to get it from all his range. Most often his flushdraws will be enough because people construct their ranges poorly but try to think in terms of equity against all his range, not just a part of it.

      I think you can either bet or check. Ace is often a scare card so will get you more folds but at the same time if he thinks you bluff such a turn often he will still call. It's up to you to decide which of the two he does. I slightly favour checking vs somewhat unknowns because I don't miss out on almost any value plus I get to showdown and learn enough about their play to make up in the long run for a missed thin value bet.
