      It's very marginal, it might be a check/fold actually.. The problem is that your hand is only a bit ahead of good draws and is beat by almost all other Ax hands that you want to get value from. The situation overall is good to lead though imo.. It's more of a situation to lead to make people fold a good part of their equity, kind of like bluffing with a hand that is also the best often but cannot play well once it checks and lets others construct their ranges vs a check.
