A 200m run of 24.30 was also close to his best and a shot puut of 10.99m saw him line up for the 800m in the silver medal position.
A time of 2.13.41 was his second best ever and left Blanc with 3,229 points as England teammate Jake Minshull took gold and Conrad Winter's 13th place score of 2,289 - after a fall in the hurdles - was enough for team gold as Blanc now steps up to under-17 level.
Paris King began her season in superb form as she broke the club's under-15 girls' indoor 60m hurdles record at the Lee Valley Open on Sunday.
King took two-tenths off her best to clock 9.34, then ran a 9.25 in round two.
