Beatle,problem with that shot is you get very little gain if you dont hang it up.
and sellout if you go in either the side pocket, or the top corner, or hit the tit, or hit the ten ball. and all those come into play from that thin hit from a distance and near the rail.
I agree. This is a dangerous position.
I think I would take a different approach and try to get out safely.
I would hit the left side of the 7 ball with Low Left English attempting to spin the 7 as far over to my side as possible. At the same time killing the cue ball as close to the middle of the end rail as I could.
