The American-bred filly has shown a decent level of form on the all-weather, but has flopped abysmally on her two runs on turf, both at her trainer's local track of Newmarket.
"I've run her twice on grass and she has run appallingly, both times at Newmarket," said Dunlop.
"She won at Kempton as a two-year-old and we went back there and she wasn't beaten far on her first run this year not fully wound up by a filly (Zurigha) who then went on to finish fourth in the French Guineas.
"It's very much a fact-finding mission for us. She did get agitated when she came off the horse-box and went straight to the racecourse so she will go early there and hopefully settle down. It's very much a case of watch and see."
The Lark, trained by Michael Bell, puts her Classic credentials on the line when she makes her seasonal reappearance in this Listed contest.
The daughter of Pivotal showed lots of promise in her two starts as a two-year-old, both in October.
After finishing fourth on her debut at Nottingham, she got off the mark over a mile at Doncaster.
"She would certainly have her chances enhanced by some more rain, but she has looked exciting in her work and we hope she will keep her Oaks chances alive with a decent effort here," the Newmarket handler told www.michaelbellracing.com.
