He has five. 4 card majors would be uncommon at a US regional.

I'd typically take the low road in pairs, and we're talking about a sub 25point slam here, but I think I'd have a nibble. If exclusion blackwood is available then 4S would be nice - needs a well-oiled partnership to roll that out over a splinter, though, you'd need to have discussed this possibility.

No gadgets, then 4S cue hoping to hear 5C from partner. If this emerges then a bold 6H - pard has the AC, four trumps, stiff D, and opps spade bid enhances the prospects of a heart honour or two. If no club cue then we subside in five.
