Next time it's slow to start, take a pair of jump leads. Connect one end to the negative on the battery and the other end to a good solid piece of engine metal, see if it behaves better.

The crimps where the cables join the battery terminals are prone to working loose. Check that the battery terminals aren't getting hot and that the crimps are secure.

I had this problem a few years ago on my 3L fine when cold or even after letting it stand for half hour or so,but just sounded and acted like battery was flat when hot.In my case it turned out to be the crank sensor on its way out.At least I'm assuming that's what it was as from the time I replaced it[after it failed totally]the problem has not reappeared.
