We predict slightly enhanced signal strengths in the Higgs coupling to the intermediate W and Z gauge bosons with a three percent excess relative to those of the Standard Model. The base of the prediction is a slightly different electroweak energy scale. The modified electroweak energy scale follows from an intrinsic conception of baryon dynamics that links to electroweak decays. Here electroweak interactions are fostered by a spontaneous symmetry break in baryonic configurations described on an intrinsic U(3) configuration space. The electroweak flavour degrees of freedom become intermingled with the colour degrees of freedom via a spontaneous U(2) pairing of two toroidal degrees of freedom in the intrinsic dynamics. The intrinsic potential thereby shapes the Higgs potential. This leads to the up-down quark mixing matrix element modifying the gauge boson couplings relative to the Standard Model expectations.
