Though I'd hoped for something more recent, the latest elset from OIG
for this decaying object...
Foton N11 Soyuz-U r                              249 x 184 km
1 25007U 97060B   97301.37835668  .01802191  84816-5  64397-3 0   629
2 25007  62.7880 164.8545 0049131 118.4390 242.1780 16.21144998  2993
shows it running 0.5 second early with respect to the SatEvo evolution I
posted yesterday.

A new evolution ("9053") leads to decay at about October 31.3
(uncertainty still 12h or so) and provides the following predicted
elsets:
