It still comes down to what will happen, not what has happened. Better performance doesn't mean better prospect always.
But to give it no weight at all is a mistake. I know you are not advocating giving it no weight but to give it just a smidge might as well be none. Same age, same level, far I mean far greater success must carry some weight.
