1.Re8+,Kd7 (if Ne7, Rxe7#)2.e6+, f7xe6, 3.Rd8# or 2. e6+,Kxe8, 3.Rc8#

1) rc8-rc3, qb5
2) pxd6, if kxd6 (white has a perpetual check)

Well, you just have to investigate the only immediate check available to white:

1. Re8 Kd7 (Ne7 2.Re7#)
2. e6!

I think white is better after 2.Rd8 and 3.Rxd6+, but mating your opponent is always going to be a superior plan:

2. .....Ke8 (fe6 3.Rd8#)
3. Rc8#

A draw is possible, through repeated checks:
1. Re8+ Kd7
(if 1....Ne7, then Rxe7++)
2. Rd8+ Ke6, with perpetual check.
