What is the gravitational effect between matter and anti matter, does it attract or repel ?

Yes, while mass and Negative mass (if this existed) would repel.

There seems to be a lot of experimental work going on to produce anti-Hydrogen to test this, not to confirm attraction or repulsion but to test whether anti-Hydrogen weighs in at 4% heavier.
