2inch B.auratum

B.auratum just before molt.
Can anyone guess the sex please?
When in premolt,epigastric furrow is pretty dark which makes it harder to tell,and this is not the best photo. Why not just check the molt?

I'm going to try and sex it when it molts but I dont have any microscopes and unsure if I'll be able to sex it with my eyes so I took a picture to post on here.

Its always easier to sex a molt than have a ventral inspection since a good spread gives obvious answer compared to a ventral photo where we have to look for details. How big is the spider? (Diagonal legspan)
