5-5 Major Hand After Partner Opens 2NT

You are playing matchpoints and you hold 87532 Q7642 A5 T and Partner opens 2NT (20-21 HCP).  What is your plan to bid this hand?

 

If you choose to bid Romex Puppet Stayman and Partner bids 3 (<4 hearts & <5 spades), you can bid 3 to ask Partner if they have 2,3, or 4 spades.  See http://www.vcbridge.org/Savage%20Conventions/Puppet%20Stayman%20a%20la%20Romex.pdf for details on Romex Puppet Stayman.

 

As usual, I'll post what happened at the table in a few days.

Bid 3 Romex Puppet Stayman. If you choose this, you will find 5-4 heart fit and 5-3/5-4 spade bit, but you will miss 5-3 heart fit.
Bid 3 transfer and then bid 3 to show 5 hearts and 4 spades
Bid 3 transfer and then bid 4
