I need a perl search string to validate filenames as I iterate through them.

The filenames should all:
Have 25 characters plus the extension (.xlsx), for example: TESTY_ClinicalQ_20171104.xlsx
First 5 characters: caps alphabetic
"ClinicalQ" just as it is (first character capital C, then lowercase "linical", then capital Q)
Then 8 numeric characters
