At the Ocala Duplicate Open Pairs yesterday the following hand came up.  N/S can make either of two grand slams 's & 's, but the 2 preempt makes getting to either slam difficult.  I was sitting North and my partner chose to bid 4.  I could not think of a reason to go on given that my partner appeared to be expecting to make only 8 or 9 tricks.  Is there a better way to announce and evaluate the prospects of such a combined holding?

Opening lead was A.  Playing 4, the play for 13 tricks was straightforward with no need for the club finesse.
