No sir, I propose coming at the three from the foot rail and ticky the three. Coming at the ticky from the top rail can work too but I have never liked sending both an object ball and the cue ball towards the foot rail unless I know what they will do or I can be certain to hide the cue ball behind other balls. This can not happen kicking the three from the top rail.Tom, post #31 is this the shot your talking about?
If I were to come at the three from the top rail I would be far better off using the eleven to ticky the three and hold the cue ball on the top rail. If I were at the table and had a good feel for the layout that might end up being my number one choice here. It's not as risky as it may appear if the cue ball remains close to the rail. The angle looks pretty good for that shot.
