7.

Partner would have doubled if the lead was right, right?

I expect the S hand was probably something like, say...

If LHO appeared annoyed when his partner pulled the double, I might try the ace. But normally I would lead my singleton club. Both opps bid as if they are likely to be short in spades, and partner didn't make a Lightner double.

Might be wrong but I think there is a good case for the A here.

lho may have a void AND their partner the king but 1 pitch out of lho's hand is unlikely to matter.

Pickling partners Q or Jxxx could be fatal if either the spade cashes or we have a trump trick. What do I pay off to? lho's spade void and partners A

A heart lead is needed on this occasion.
