By default smart info will display the message at bottom. if you want to show it on top. you need to make css changes and you can add this in userwork form or any other custom css files which added to the skin in you application
I am not sure if CSS changes can help here. In the skin, smartInfo changes only seems to affect its appearance and not its position.
This may need a JS level override.
Also note that smartInfo displays on the top / bottom depending on the available real estate. By default it appears on the bottom, but if there is no space to display below it moves to the top. See attached screen shots.
