9 Before 5

This hand came up in the GNT Open this year and I am curious to see what others think the right line of play is:

 

North
J98x
Q10
9x
AKQxx
South
AKx
87xx
AKJx
10x
W
N
E
S
1
P
1
P
1NT
P
2NT
P
3
P
3
P
3NT
P
P
P

1 = 15+

1 = 9-12 any except 5

1NT = 15-18

2NT = Puppet

3 = no 5M

3 = 4

 

Lead = 7, 4th.  When you play the 9 from dummy, it holds, with RHO playing the 2nd lowest outstanding spot, UDCA.  You are playing the eventual runners up so needless to say, opponents are strong.
