Thursday Puzzle / Game

White to play and win

It is easy to be lazy when doing puzzles and I have to confess that I fell into that trap with this one.  Having found the first move for White I considered the problem solved but had not seen two interesting defensive tries for Black.  In so doing I missed the main point of the study and its elegant full solution.

Can you do better and find the right first move for White and Black’s best attempts at a defence?
