We've taken a look through various horse racing media publications to bring you which horses the newspaper experts are backing on day one of the Dante Festival at York.

1.50 FUJAIRA PRINCE (3/1 William Hill) was very impressive when winning on his comeback and handicap debut at Doncaster last time out. He’s had an interrupted career and is having just his fifth run despite being five.

2.25 ALJADY (6/1 bet365) is interesting on this first start as a four-year-old. He showed promise last season, finishing off with a close-up second in good company at Ascot. He has been gelded since then and should improve this year.

3.00 YAFTA (4/1 bet365) was a place ahead of Brando last time at Newmarket and may have needed that comeback run after eight months off. He wasn’t helped by having to switch when running on well before being beaten a head.

3.35 SPARKLE ROLL (11/4 Unibet) was impressive when winning on her three-year-old debut when winning with plenty in hand at Sandown last month. She showed a high cruising speed there before quickly putting the race to bed.

The Scout (Daily Express)
1.50 FUJAIRA PRINCE (3/1 William Hill)
2.25 WENTWORTH FALLS (10/1 bet365)
3.00 INVINCIBLE ARMY (11/4 Ladbrokes)
3.35 SPARKLE ROLL (NAP) (11/4 Unibet)
4.05 MAGICAL WISH (25/1 bet365)
4.35 MONOSKI (6/1 William Hill)
5.05 GET BACK GET BACK (6/1 bet365)

1.50 Crystal King (7/1 Unibet)
2.25 Staxton (7/1 William Hill)
3.00 Yafta (4/1 bet365)
3.35 Frankellina (3/1 william Hill)
4.05 Karnavaal (7/2 Unibet)
4.35 Sun Power (7/2 Unibet)
5.05 Past Master (5/1 bet365)

Templegate (The Sun)
1.50 York - Top team John Gosden and Frankie Dettori should kick off with a winner. Their star player in this is Enable’s lead horse FIRST ELEVEN (5/1 bet365). He was unlucky not to win a Royal Ascot handicap last season before returning to that track to beat Ghostwatch in September. A fast pace on quick ground is just what he wants.

2.25 York - SOLDIER’S MINUTE (25/1 Unibet) has run some good races at this track and he looked to have improved over the winter when making a winning return at Kempton in March. Keith Dalgleish’s speedster had little chance from a poor draw when dropped to 5f last time out and I’m expecting him to show his true colours today.

3.00 York - YAFTA (4/1 bet365) should take the lead role. He was consistent last season when successful at Group 3 level. There was a lot to like about his second behind Keystroke at Newmarket last month when Brando was back in third. This looks a good opportunity for him to take the next step up.

3.35 York - ENTITLE (6/1 William Hill) deserves plenty of respect in the Tattersalls Musidora. She’s a half-sister to dual Arc heroine Enable and, while it’s unlikely she’ll ever get near that level she is a smart filly. My fancy blew the start on her debut but was much better when successful at Lingfield in December despite again showing her inexperience.

Sam Turner (The Daily Mail)
York
1.50 First Eleven (5/1 bet365)
2.25 Reputation (10/1 Ladbrokes)
3.00 Invincible Army (11/4 Ladbrokes)
3.35 Frankellina (3/1 William Hill)
4.05 Space Blues (NAP) (7/2 bet365)
4.35 Sun Power (7/2 Unibet)
5.05 Starcaster (3/1 Ladbrokes)
