1.Rh1 looks really good to my eye- it helps defang the check from d6 in some lines I can imagine, and it also indirectly protects the e4 pawn where Kg3 gives a deadly discovered check. I tried to make 1.g4+ work, but the naked white king was a problem I can't see an out for.

g4+ still plays a role: Rh1 Qe3 g4+ (the king can no longer escape back to the h file after Qf5+)
