Default Good RIN, bad mRNA?

Hello, I'm preparing some RNA for RNAseq and I submitted my samples to the local sequencing core for quality control on the bioanalyzer. The results came back and my samples have good RIN values, almost all >9. But I can't see a nice bump for the mRNA in which I am interested. I'm not sure if all of the peaks along the electrophoretogram are obscuring the mRNA. Should I trust these samples based on the RIN value alone? I want to proceed to ribosome depletion but I don't want to waste an expensive kit on samples that might not have good mRNA in them.

The attached is an example of my bioanalyzer results.
