Without the 9, forget about any double finesse. Cash the Ace. That will protect you against the stiff King or Jack (you will then play small to to the 10 and eventually finesse the 8).
If the Ace collects lows cards, come back to your hand and play the 5 of heart. What do you do if West plays low again? Put up the Queen, your best chance, as Rimstedt did at the table, winning his slam when West held Kxx.
