Question Need some expert, or otherwise, opinions!!!

Need some input as to what you folks think this banana is. To me, it seems to be some type of cavendish, but would really like to get others input on what you think it is. Any and all input would be greatly appreciated!!!!



A bit closer shot:



The leaves on this banana are fairly thick and as you can see the pstem is rather gloucous. The leaves also have the burgandy splotches on them when younger, but lose it as the leaf ages.
Thanks in advance for the input...

OK, I'm here for the "otherwise" opinion! Looks like a DC to me.

Even looks a little Raja Puri-like. Like Brent said, DC or Gran Nain are good guesses too.

To add some more info. My DC has some red color on the linings across the petioles, like this plant in the picture. But my Grand Nain seems to have rather green, brown and dark coloring. No red at all. I think it's a wild guess from me, but this shouldn't be the GN, DC more likely...
