I guess what you could do is creating an additional variable for the 'group by' statement.

This variable should contain a distinct value for the top 3 rows and an identical value for all other rows.

Search the forum with "top sql" - there are already quite a few threads around identifying "top" rows.

I would expect that you'll end up with a sub-select and a case statement.
