Seems to me that this has not yet been answered.
You could try something like the handler below in the script of the
set the layer of me to top
put the number of graphics into Gnumber
repeat with i = 1 to Gnumber
if intersect(me, grc i) then
put the name of grc i
# or do whatever you want
send "mousedown" to me in 100 milliseconds
The last line does the trick.
