TT Picks Up OESD On Turn

This hand comes from a session that my friend Rohan and I played together. We were chatting on Skype about the hands as they were happening. This was one of the spots we weren’t quite sure which way to go!

Villain is 16/14/3 over 700 hands. He calls on the flop on a pretty dry board, we pick up a straight draw on the turn, I can see the merits of both bet/folding and check/calling here, what is your preferred play?
