Hi Foz - two possibilites come to mind
1. The TDC sensor is dirty or duff
2. An engine temperature sensor is faulty - the ECU thinks the engine is cold when it's not and overfuels the engine making it hard to start.

The TDC sensor is located on top of the gearbox close to the engine and is held by two bolts
