A Tricky Pre-Endgame Puzzle

What would you do here?

A pre-endgame against Barry Harridge from the Border Challenge recently that I’ve been thinking about a lot. Scores are level. 3 tiles in the bag.

The candidate moves seem to be:
-VI(R)L or VERD or DERV
-(A)V(I)ZE or with a D
-(HA)ZE or with a D or an L
-VEL(E) on the E of TESTY

I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be considering here to decide. The unseen J making HAJ or playing onto a triple is the concern.
