Looks male to me. It's pretty freshly moulted though, right? Give it a few weeks to harden and check the same angle.
 
The epigastic furrow is more significant on a female, especially a mature female like this.

Shine a light back to front and you should see a dot right above the furrow, this is a dead giveaway of a male females don't have this feature. Makes sexing pokies easy.
 
"The dot" mentioned by cold blood looks a bit pale, but it seems present. It's just a bit more difficult to see shortly after a moult. Both my moult confirmed males fooled me after moulting because "the dot" was "gone" until they hardened.
