White to play and win

I doubt I played black correctly but the d pawn just seems to fast to deal with because black's king would get checked if it stays put.

Nswwsn gave the solution for #188 .The curious thing about this puzzle is that in different lines all the 3 black pawns goes to Queens and in every one case are trapped by white Queen.

1.Rxc6 a5 2.Rb6+ Kc4 3.Ra6 Kb4  leads to draw ....

But there is a better move for black - 1...Kc3  and may be there is hidden real solution...
