The launch has occurred at exactly 07:10 UTC, the payload is indeed LKW-4 and the satellite is now in orbit.
CZ-2D s/n Y50 was used for this launch.

Object 43236 has been catalogued, orbital elements look OK.

Hoping to get confirmation of the launh code for this flight: 01-90?   We do not have the code for the third launch in this series - it would be either 01-86 or 01-87.

So maybe #3 was 01-86 and #4 01-87?

That would suggest that #4 was originally planned to follow very closely after #3.

Remember that the CZ-2D2 second stage is normally de-orbited before being catalogued.

I'm expecting objets B,C, D and E to appear soon: 4 retro rocket fairing tops from the 2nd stage
