Guess the (non)finesse - or do we have enough clues?

You have ended up in 6 after the following bidding:

1 2 X 4

5NT p 6 all pass

X was the system bid to show either 4+ a gf hand with only 3-c fit and 5NT was pick a slam.

After Ace lead you see that the contract depends on finding the Q (I put declare South):

AJ1052

KJ8743

K5

-

--------

KQ86

A92

D1086

J6

 

You get almost the full count of the hand when you pull trumps (2-2) and play the 3rd and 4th round of (3-4). The 2 bidder has started with:

93

10

J972

any 5 cards

and another card that could be Q or a 6th club.

So the 4 bidder has 

74

5

A43

any 5 cards

and another card that could be Q or a 6th club.

 

Whom do you think you should play for the Q?

 

And coming back to the head line: Do you think this is a guess or do you think this is quite clear?

I finesse playing for Qxx vs x (and 6 clubs on my right)
I play from top playing for xx vs Qx (and 6 clubs on my left)
