Probably you have stemmer and it is eating up Capital to capit. Thats the reason.
Either remove stemmer from analyser chain or add keyword repeat filter.

I don't understand this at all. We are indexing some contact names. When we
do a standard query:

query 1: capi*
result: Capital Health

query 2: capit*
result: Capital Health

query 3: capita*
result: <no results>

query 4: capital*
result: <no results>

I understand (as we are using solar 3.5) that the wildcard search does not
actually return the query without the wildcard so I understand at least why
query 4 is not working ( I need to use: capital* OR capital ). What I don't
understand is why query 3 is not working.

Also if we place in the text field the following 3 contacts:
Capital Heath

When searching for:

query A: capita*

query B: capit*
result:,, Capital Heath

What is going on and how can I solve this?
many thanks as I'm really stuck on this
