timecycle defintion

I have a process that needs to start each day at 5am. So I have a process that defines


<startEvent id="myprocessid">
    <timerEventDefinition>
        <timeCycle>0 0 5 * * ?</timeCycle>
    </timerEventDefinition>
</startEvent>

Is this the correct definition?

In case you're wondering, when I deploy this definition into our application-with-embedded-Activiti-5.7 the first run appears in the act_ru_job table for tomorrow morning 5am, but it doesn't.

Just before I start pulling what's left of my hair out trying to find the cause in our source somewhere, can someone please confirm that above timeCycle definition is the one I need to start every day at 5am?

Thanks

[Edit: Additional info: instead of starting every day at 5am, it starts a few (3-4) hours apart, something like 9ish, 12ish and 16ish. ]
