Definitely unstack the bloated midpoint.  Then it's a question of whether to keep moving and slot the 5, unstack the 6, or get the runner going.

He's got 9 checkers in the zone right now, and will have more in a roll or two, so there's no better time than right now to get the runner moving.  I  like the spare on the 8, and 6/3 accomplishes little, so 24/21 it is.

XG likes the herd's play best, although 13/5 is not too far behind.
