ok what is wrong with 4.Ra1#?

Seriously, Lloyd,  what is wrong with spending 2 seconds to look at that for yourself? With your rating and experience in posting, surely wouldn't take as long as it took you to write the post....

Actually 4. Ra1 # is an equally acceptable solution

Actually I meant to write Ra1+...# (Shortcut for:4. Ra1+ Qa5 / 5.Rxa5 bxa5 / 6Qa6#
My keyboard for some reason must have skipped those dots and the "+"
 Anyway, my bad. Corrected.
