One other consideration is that if you had a two-suited hand with spades and clubs, you would have bid 3S rather than doubling. So partner is more likely to bid 3NT with a reasonable diamond stopper and four spades. None of this is certain to get you to the right spot, but it does help swing the odds in your favour.

Since partner bid 3S, instead of 3NT, he doesn't have a diamond stop. Bid 4C now. You were prepared to bid 4C anyway and it has cost you nothing to have investigated 3NT first.


Yes, this!
