if the dash cluster is digital, there's a very good chance that it's just the gauge playing up, they are notorious for it, mine doesnt play up though.

Tip about hoses was good one. Bottom rad hose should have a coil of wire in it to stop it being sucked in by pump when running mid to high revs.
If rad is partially blocked then this problem is made worse.
With cold motor reach down and squeeze bottom rad hose to see if there is resistance to crushing and also check that the wire is not flattened out like our Ford badge.
The only difference between recovery and non recovery rad caps is the washer under the cap lid.
Also check that thermostat is not in wrong way around, I have managed to do this on one occasion and it gives this exact symptom!
Good hunting.
