Safety Play in 6NT

While kibitzing on Bridge Base, the declaring side came to 6NT which needed to solve the following suit for 1 loser:

T87         AK543

The kibitzers came to the conclusion that the best play was to play the 7 or 8 planning on finessing.   If the J or Q pop up on the way up, you win the ace and lead low towards the T.   If it doesn't you finesse the 7 and hope its singleton 6 offside or the suit breaks 3-2.

Edit: When I wrote up the suit combination I was talking about it in a vacuum.  Here is the hand, for people to understand Bart's Comments:

North
K6
A4
K1074
AK543
South
AQ32
KQJ
A96
1087

6NT by south, no opponents bidding 9 lead (showing the T)
