    Idioms

    Hi,
    can anyone tell me what word I could use in a report instead of
    "plain (smooth " sailing?
    Something like : There will be an audit and it is our priority to sail smoothly through it. I need a nice "educated" sounding word.
    thank you

    There will be an audit and it is our priority to come through with flying colors.
    There will be an audit and it is our priority to ace it.
    There will be an audit and it is our priority to breeze through it.
