My horses liked the CAIR panels more than I did, but I haven't ridden them a long time with it. I doubt you are seeing something caused by the CAIR panels. IIRC, CAIR panels are front & back, not top and bottom.
It looks like the pressure is even and symmetrical, which is really all that a saddle can do.
I've read that roaning can be caused by rubbing rather than pressure. I do NOT know if this is true. You might consider your saddle pad rather than your saddle.
All the above is guessing. I'm not a saddle fitter or trainer or anything else.
