cam oil-hole placement sbc

can anyone tell me if it makes more sense to place cam oil hole above or to the left of the 12 oclock position,( facing front to back uprite engine oreintion . ) to let the oil out of the supply at the lowest point of resistance or is the argument that the pressure forces the bearing to load oil on the race and away from the hole . And the reason I say to the left of 12 oclock is to even out flow to the lower end mains .. Any thoughts ?
