A little inside draw off the 1 would ensure a good hit on the 8. Even if I miss, I'll have the 1 near my hole, the 12 is not a threat, and the 3 is still there on my side for a future bank shot after my opponent has to deal with the 1 ball right away.
Why would you consider drawing the CB back that far? There's a good sized area for the CB where the 1 is out of play, and the 12 can't be banked (but it can be cut if the 3 pockets).
