A variety is called a Specht variety if every algebra in this variety has a finite basis of identities. In 1981 S. V. Pchelintsev defined the topological rank of a Specht variety.

Let $\mathbf N_k$ be the variety of commutative alternative algebras over a field of characteristic $3$ with nilpotency class not greater than $k$. Let $\mathbf D$ be the variety $\mathbf N_3\mathbf N_2$ of nil-algebras of index $3$, i.e.\ the commutative alternative algebras with identities
x^3=0,\quad [(x_1x_2)(x_3x_4)](x_5x_6)=0.
In the paper we prove that the varieties $\mathbf N_k\mathbf N_l$ are Specht varieties. Moreover, a base of the space of polylinear polynomials in the free algebra $F(\mathbf D)$ is built and the topological rank $\mathrm r_{\mathrm t}(\mathbf D_n)=n+2$ of varieties
\mathbf D_n = \mathbf D \cap \mathrm{Var}((xy\cdot zt)x_1\ldots x_n)
is found. This implies that the topological rank of the variety $\mathbf D$ is infinite.
