I have done similar with a clutch slave cylinder on an MG TF, where the bleed nipple was not at the highest spot.
One thing I would say, is make something to fit inside the caliper to stop the pistons moving out. (block of hard wood or similar)
Unless you use gravity bleeding, then any other method will try and push out the pistons.
