The 4 moves you proposed will come at some point, the rook moves Rb6 and Rc6 would be better than Kh3 if the Black King was not located e7 which leaves Re6+ and Bd1. Bd1 at this point does not gain us as much as one would think since it forces the knight to move toward the center to act as a shield to allow the King to get past our rook which is trapping thier king on the back 2 rows. This leaves us with your Re6+ and my Kh3 either of which I'm fine with. Remeber to much chasing without a pawn move is a draw.
