Here is a guess, assuming a manoeuvre to circularize close to the planned
450 km altitude not long after launch:

                                                         449 X 452 km
1 70000U          17215.16041668  .00000000  00000-0  00000-0 0    08
2 70000  97.2000 289.4300 0002000 343.3000 224.7200 15.37500000    06
