Code:

I can confirm that this puzzle is solvable without pencil marks.
Thus, it provides a suitable challenge for mental agility!

There were no really difficult hurdles but a couple of occasions
where one had to remember a configuration in one part of the grid
while considering another part as the earlier implication formed
a constraint within the later logic.

When doing a puzzle like this I have constantly to avoid the real
temptation to start entering Mandatory Pairs - but the end result
of a grid containing ONLY resolved cells is a reward for resistance!
(except that this time, I entered a sequence number in the bottom
right so that it is, theoretically, possible to revisit the logic used).

Incidentally, we may wish to adopt a convention

Top Left - Candidate Profile superscript
Bottom Left - Mandatory Pairs - subscript
Bottom Right - Sequence number for resolved cells.

Any ideas for the top right, or should we hold it in reserve?
