Casting a TList Item

How can I cast a TList item?  I have a TList object that contains TStringLIst objects.  I want to do a find on the TSTringList, but I can't cast it.  Here are the things I have tried:

   MyString := MyTList.Items[0].Strings[0] ;
Error: Record, object, or class type required.

   MyString := (MyTList.Items[0] as TStringLIst).Strings[0] ;
Error: Operator not applicable to this operand type.

I realize that MyTList.tems[0] is actually returning a pointer, but I can't figure out how to turn that into something I can use.  I also realise that I can assign MyTList.Items[0] to a temporary variable that is typed as a TStringList, but that is a pain in the ass.  It also makes the code a lot more complicated when I am looping through a TList of TStringLIsts.
