Unhappy a forward belly in a double spey

I need some spey casting advice. I have my right hand on top, I'm on the right bank, so the river is flowing left to right. I go for the double spey to cast 45 degrees downstream. Every single time I make this cast my line shoots out with a big downstream belly. I have to make a massive upstream mend just to straighten everything out, and it's killing my swing. How can I get that line to shoot out nice and straight?

I'm thinking I just need to come straight down with the rod as I make the forward cast. I must be coming down at an arc.

Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks.
