Dire Straits: CAN you be a Swing Sultan?

Down heavily in the last quarter of the Vanderbilt.  On Bd 21 (hand 51 of 60)

You reach a good slam needing only to pick up the heart suit for one loser

The opponents have 11 spades and the diamonds were 2-2

You have the AJ6432 and dummy the 975

You lead toward your hand and RHO plays the T

 

Q1  Can/should you assume your opponents at the other table also reached this contract

Q2  If no, is there a recommended way to play the heart suit given that RHO played the ten on your lead toward the AJ?

Q3  if yes, is there a recommended way to play the heart suit to generate a favorable swing?

 Bd 21

(You'd think I'd know by now how to export a vugraph deal as a handviewer link... but I don't)

 

 

Contract the same at the other table: I need a swing and I play low to the J
Contract the same at the other table: I need a swing and I play to the Ace
They aren't in slam at the other table: My best play is low to the J
They aren't in slam at the other table: My best play, once RHO plays the ten is the Ace
something else and I'm sure you'll explain
