Am I overthinking ? Opening lead choice.

A few days ago at the club, I picked up the following hand: 65 K10753 943 985. You are playing matchpoints, both sides are vulnerable.

The bidding proceeded 1NT by RHO, 2C by LHO (regular Stayman), 2D by RHO, 3NT by LHO.

Is a heart lead automatic? You don't have any sign of an outside entry, so the heart suit might not have much future. With partner being marked with 4+ spades and some values, I led a spade.

Declarer took the first 11 tricks. If I lead a heart, we take the first 5 tricks...
