It could be his throttle body ... these cruddy 1.4 and 1.6s tend to suffer from it.

The throttle body gets caked in crap and causes it to stick, making 'chase for revs' and cut out. Mine used to do it when turning or slowing down usually.

I cleaned mine out using a little bit of carb cleaner on a rag and it was all good [:D] Nice easy job!
