Best case is that you check in online, board, and no one notices or has the energy to do anything. Four hours is a while, but not enough that I would voluntarily give up a F seat for coach if it isn't required.
I'm tall which is why I really try for exit rows, and also I'll be traveling with my wife so didn't want to split up with different middle seats. 24 hour check-in starts in 10 minutes so I'm sure the exit row may go away at that time. Still a bit torn on this.
