You'll need to place the anchor in a paragraph at the top of your desired
Regardless of how it gets to the top, there are at least 3 ways to do this:
1-Put the anchor in the Figure/Table Title paragraph
2-Create a blank para and set the anchor position to At Insertion Point
3-Use the ol' 2pt Anchor para tag to minimize lost space at top of page

Subject: Frames within Frames Question
We have books with different text frames for left and right master
pages (in order to leave more space in the gutter than on the
outside). When you insert a graphics frame for an illustration it
references the page, not the text frame. The result is that if the
pagination shifts, as it often does as you insert new graphics or
futz with the text, the graphics frames are often off-center since
they are getting their coordinates from the page, not the text frame,
which has moved.
