2-5 Bluff Raise Probably River Blocker Bet

$750 effective.
I open K Q UTG 1 to $20 and get called by a nitty woman who plays passively w/o top pair+ post flop and the BB who is new to the table and bought in for $1,000.

Flop ($60) J 8 5

BB checks, I bet $40, nitty woman folds, BB calls.

Turn ($140) 2 BB checks, I check it back. Bad barrel card against a Jack. I could be ahead of 76 and some hands he is peeling light on the flop but I decided to take a free card.

River ($140) 4 BB leads for $55.

Would anyone consider bluff-raising this bet? It looks like either a weak Jack or some type of hand he doesn't want to check-call with because of the flop. He didn't take too long with the bet and the sizing is giving me the vibe he is blocking with some medium strength hand....

    Just fold. With a relevant blocker this might be a play you can make against someone you know can value bet thin on this river but you're going to run into a straight or flush too often especially when you have the hand you have.
