    My first choice was 1. Qe8+ and analyzed a number of variations that are winning for White, but simplest is:

    1. Ng4 Rf7 (or 1…Rf8) 2. Rxf5 Rxf5 3. Nh6+ Kf8 4. Nxf5+-

    I also think 1.Ng4 is the best move for White because of 1.Qe8+ Kh7 2.Ng4 Rf8.
    There are other variations. They are as follows :
    (a) 1.Ng4 Re6 2.Rxf5 Re2+ 3.Rf2 Rxf2+ 4.Nxf2 Qxd4 5.Qxg5+ Kh7 6.Qh4+ Qxh4 7.gxh4 ±
    (b) 1.Ng4 Qf7 2.Qxf7+ Rxf7 ( or 2. …Kxf7 3.Nxf6 Kxf6 4.g4 Kg7 5.Rxf5 or 5.gxf5 ± ) 3.Rxf5 Rxf5 4.Nh6+ Kh7 5.Nxf5 ±
    (c) 1.Ng4 Rg6 2.Rxf5 ±
    (d) 1.Ng4 Nxg3 2.Nxf6+ Qxf6 ( 2. …Kf8?? 3.Qe8# ) 3.Qe8+ Kg7 4.Rxf6 Kxf6 5.Kxg3 ±
    (e) 1.Ng4 Rh6 2.Qe8+ Qf8 ( or 2. …Kh7 3.Rxf5 ± ) 3.Qxf8+ Kxf8 4.Nxh6 Kg7 5.Nxf5+ ±
