To set the time component to 4:00 (for example) try:

UPDATE table
SET field = TO_DATE(TO_CHAR(field,'dd-mon-yyyy')||' 04:00', 'dd-mon-yyyy hh24:mi');

You could adapt this to set the time component to be the current time plus 4 hours by using

UPDATE table
SET field = field+(4/24);

Hope this helps
