There is actually a bug in DSpace 5 that means only one of multiple
bitstreams is indexed for search anyway: So technically, you can know
which one it is, but that won't help your use case I suspect.

Generally, to see what information is available in Discovery, you could
make a Solr query on the server that's running Tomcat (Solr is
restricted to localhost). For an item with handle 123456789/1234 and
assuming all standard paths/ports, you'd request

curl 'http://localhost:8080/solr/search/select?q=handle:123456789/1234
