2018 Olympic Winter Games - Ladies Moguls (Final commences Sunday 11pm AEDT; Qualification begins Friday 12pm AEDT)

Victorian Britteny Cox is Australia's best chance of winning a gold medal in Pyeongchang, with TAB rating her a $6 chance of standing on top of the dais.

Cox was the youngest athlete at the 2010 Games in Vancouver and now, at 23 years of age, she is ready to announce herself on the world stage.

She knows her best is good enough, having claimed the gold medal at the world championships in Spain last year, and we're tipping her to join Dale Begg-Smith as Australia's only medallists in the moguls event.

Tip: Britteny Cox to win the ladies moguls at $6

But he was beaten at the XGames recently in Aspen, by Ayumu Hirano, and the Japanese sensation is fancied to go one better than in Sochi four years ago.
