We re-investigate electroweak signal-background interference in associated Higgs production via gluon fusion in the presence of new physics in the top-Higgs sector. Considering the full final state pp → b b~ l+ l- (l=e,μ), we discuss how new physics in the top-Higgs sector that enhances the ZZ component can leave footprints in the HZ limit setting. In passing we study the phenomenology of a class of new physics interactions that can be genuinely studied in this process.
