Recently taking 6-8 key turns to catch then struggles to get going for a few seconds.
Garage check - no fault codes appearing.
Throttle body replaced, issue not resolved.
Once it catches runs OK.
Any suggestions.

You checked the basics like plugs ? If so ,could try changing the engine coolant temp sensor which lets the ECU unit know how much fuel the engine requires under different loads and when cold etc, Like using the choke on old cars .
