Sluggish starting any ideas?

Got a Phase 2 GTV 2 litre twin spark that is a bit sluggish on starting, I have just serviced it new filters, oil, plugs etc, But it needs a bit of cranking and usually starts second time, sometimes i need to put the accelarator pedal down to get it to fire up and run. My other GTV'S all start on the turn of the key and fire up straight away, Anyone got any ideas

Nothing obvious here but I'm assuming that the battery is in good condition ?

Does it run well when it does start ?
