For best results in the FM only single operator contest should I stick with vertical polarization or go to horizontal polarization ?

You should stick with vertical polarization.

I've done FM contesting using 222 and 446 Yagis mounted on a horizontal crossboom.
I've designed a rear mount 2M FM Yagi.
