Poor Starting

I have a punto 55s m reg which is intermittently poor to start when cold.Has had the head gasket done and both coils replaced so i hope i can rule these two out.
The symptoms are it turns over and wont fire and it seems to be like it is flooding as when it starts there is a bit of black smoke and it runs lumpy for a few seconds and needs to be reved until it until it has cleared the plugs.Any pointers in the right direction would be gratefully received.

Re: Poor Starting

Try wiping the crankcase sensor, they can get covered in cr*p, but it would usually run rought all the time, still for the seconds it takes to clean it, it would rule it out.
