Assuming that the maneuver had taken place 24 hours earlier, I created
a pseudo-observation for 8 minutes early to generate the following guess:

OTV 5 guess
1 42932U 17052A   18109.82112174 0.00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    03
2 42932  54.4928 103.5230 0008000 204.5387 155.4612 15.79951988    01

Of course if the maneuver took place even less than 24 hours earlier,
then the new mean motion would be even larger and it would be early
even compared to this guess.
