Go to the results section of texasmusicforms and look at the PML rankings. You can select grade 3 and see the most popular ones. These pieces are popular for a reason. You can get a good idea from there. Also you didn't mention your clarinets, but maybe Abracadabra would work. I've done ok with In the Shining of the Stars with weak trumpets before. Steel might work for your situation.
