Anchors for anchor rollers

I''d appreciate some input regarding what anchor to keep as a primary anchor on the bow roller of my PS Dana 24.

I sail in an area with primarily muddy/clayey/and sometimes sand bottoms. My primary danforth alway held well for the Westerly 25; on the Westerly I kept it on the foredeck on chocks.

This spring I picked up a Pacific Seacraft Dana 24 @ about 9000-10000 pounds cruising displacement. The Dana is equiped with a short bowsprit with double anchor rollers. It came with an adequately sized danforth, but I don''t think this boat has been anchored much. I anchor frequently.
