how to flatten a elliptical thin extrude

Hi guys, I'm new to solidworks and I am trying to flatten a ellipse that is 10"X15" like in the part I attached. It is thin extruded but when I try to add a bend it tells me it is not possible. Basically what I want to do is flatten the 10"x15" oval(ellipse) after I make a 4" hole 15 Deg from center.

 

I also tried to make the ellipse using arcs but then it gives me an error saying that some bends could not be collected.

 

I seem to be stuck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
