Good day,
Trying to penetrate Yimin's devious approach! Answers with parsing would be appreciated for the following, please! Thanks in advance!

5. Invigorate Northern Italy for base, brought back Victor Emmanuel (6): ?I??W?
19. Cavalryman’s pair of horses almost ready to tilt … almost (6): ????E?
20. Three kings? A couple followed by magnificent Nebuchadnezzar (9) : ??MR?????
29. Half-unsighted, edge turning ball in start of night-time cricket (8): L??M????
35. Notice on X-ray – born with base of spine attached to different organ (6): ?OC???

5. Bustles about local women and shapes frocks (5): ?H???
7. Tailless cat ascended mountain pass – it killed antelope (7): ?g????m
9. Princess born for king in extraordinary bond (5): ?t???
22. Delicate management uses diamonds in no trumps – endplay ultimately (6):
25. Topless bloke in Ibiza’s game! (5): A??E?
27. Addict’s doomed state (5) : A??EO

Some clues have an extra word. The initial letters of those words in clue order spell three names associated with a place. A prominent feature of the place appears in the unclued 14, 32 and 33 (four words). Solvers should highlight the name of the place in the completed grid.

This is Yimin’s 3rd Crossword Centre puzzle. Yimin will offer an additional prize to the first solver drawn from the electronic bag whose correct solution is accompanied by the correct explanation of the title and theme. The archive of Crossword News at the old Crossword Centre blog ( will help, as will the ‘Themes’ of the 2009 puzzles in the database of Listener Crossword found under Crossword Links of that blog.

Sorry, roslyn211254 - it's not you (I believe Roslyn lives in Germany). You might already know this if you've looked at the puzzle - I've only just noticed your post, sorry for the delay.
...then again, it could be you - Roslyn is obviously very good at solving crosswords (Azed in particular).

Your link doesn't work because you have put a '(' at one end of it and a ')' at the other.
I don't think that was meant for me, Baldric... was it?
