On the break shot of the next rack, I went softer with draw because I was on the angle with the CB that is a fuller cut. From the old straight pool instructionals I watched years ago, they said to hit a shot like that with draw and softer, just enough to knock a few balls loose. IDK if that is still the preferred way in today's game...
I have no clue what "the right way" is...lol.
At this point I go for generating as many options as I can safely.
In your situation I would hit it with less draw and jack up slightly to hop/slide the CB into the pack. This would allows me to hit the shot with more force and limit the inertia of the CB. The natural carom off the pack brings the CB up table.
