It's usually the top hose that pops.
A visual inspection for obvious splits and damp oily patches usually comes up trumps.
Ford charge about £60 for the hose as they insist on supplying the metal middle part too.
You can buy a decent silicone replacement part on ebay for approx £30.
If you do the work yourself make sure that the jubilee clips are positioned so that they don't rub any other part (particularly the expansion tank).
The job takes about 30 minutes and you only need screwdrivers and maybe a spanner set.

A Matelot (look it up ), dies and goes to heaven.
St Peter asks him what he'd like in his personal eternal environment so he can have a blissful afterlife.
The Matelot asks that he never has to share afterlife with any Royal Marines as he hated them in life and has no intention of suffering them in death.
St Peter creates the Matelot's personal heaven for him and tells him that when he awakes in the morning everything will be perfect.
The next morning he awakes to the sound of someone shouting 'LEFT RIGHT LEFT RIGHT, ABOUT TURN, HALT, ATTENSHUN, FALL OUT THE OFFICERS!!'.
The matelot looks out of the window to see someone in a Royal Marines uniform marching up and down and gets suitably annoyed.
He storms off to find St Peter ang give him a piece of his mind.
He berates St Peter at great length and then allows him the chance to explain.
'That's not a Royal Marine' says St Peter ' that's God, he just thinks he's a Royal Marine'
