More back rank practice #4

Here's another exercise from 1001 Brilliant Ways to Checkmate, considerably more complicated that the last few we saw (but still not that hard):

 White to play and win

Can you combine pressure on h7 with the idea of mating on d8?  Don't forget that White has a bishop on b1!

I'm thinking White's only check on the board, followed by his only check on the board, followed by one of the two possible checks, followed by mate. But that's just a wild guess.
