Question A new "angle" on a question about duel antennas

I have been out of RC for about 8 years. I sold everything, and I mean supplies, tools and all. I could NOT stand not flying so I am back into RC in a "slower and higher" mode. I bought a Radian 2 meter sailplane and I have a question about my Tactic 625 receiver with the twin antennas using my Tactic 610 SLT radio.

I have a question about twin antenna routing with a Tactic 625 receiver in my Radian sailplane. I have studied dozens of suggestions but since this is a (foam) sailplane that could have a very high altitude in a good thermal, I am concerned about a vertical position of one of the 2 two antennas.

I believe I narrowed it down to 1 antenna running horizontally, and at least 3 inches away, the other antenna tip end mounted "vertically", pointing either up, or downward.
The best, and easiest routing is to the top of the fuselage in my case.

That leads me to this question: Assuming my Radian is VERY high, and the vertical tip is on the top center of the fuselage, pointing skyward, (and behind the cockpit), will that position be hard to pick up "that doughnut" of signal from the radio? Should I point the tip downward? ( Downward is NOT easy to achieve in my plane).
So many contradictions on the Internet so I thought would ask here at RC Universe, being away for 8 years I almost forgot.
Photos of your setups would be a plus.
Thanks in advance lownslo (Bob)
