Pass or bid?

What should you do with this hand? The opponents open 1D, Partner overcalls 1H and Responder bids 2C. You are sitting in 4th seat, non-vulnerable and you have 7 spades to king jack ten, a singleton rubbish heart, a singleton ace and four tiddly clubs. Should you make a competetive/obstructive spade overcall and if so at what level? Or should you pass?

    It would help to know whether oppents are vulnerable and the form of scoring (IMPs or match points?). It would also help to know any system agreements (for example I would play a 3S bid as a fit-jump, others might play it as a splinter - in either case that would rule out the bid!). Even a 2S bid can have different interpretations - I would tend to play it as natural and constructive, but others might play it as forcing (or non-forcing sign-off).

    Playing my systems I would probably bid 2S, but I might bid 4S vs. vulnerable opponents.
