Just took my first CAT, what are the chances my score is due to random luck / chance?

Rank: Baboon | banana points 150

I just took my first GMATPrep practice CAT and got a 720, Q48 V41. The quant was pretty easy and I'm able to tell that I know the math, so I'm not as worried about that. However, for verbal, for every question I just "knew" what the right answer was. I have no method for solving the questions that involved deep analysis, but still my answers were very accurate. What are the chances that I just received my verbal score due to just blind luck of having my gut feeling being correct? Am I likely to score this well on an actual GMAT or does that require the analysis techniques from courses like Manhattan, e-gmat, etc.? Thanks for any insight that the forum has. Keep in mind I am a native english speaker who has generally scored between the 95th and 99th percentile on the verbal portion of standardized tests without prep.
