I  don't see anything predicted to be there.

It could be a GSSAP geo sat, as they like to move around in geo orbit. 

Look at that area, between those 2 geo's sat's you meantioned, and also start observing ahead  and after the predicted time, of where the below predicted orbit gives.

 This object is few fainter than EXPRESS
 AM-3 (28707 = 2005-023A)
 And significantly fainter than CHINASAT
 2C (41021 = 2015-063A)
 Look like a GEO...
