Thanks a lot Erik. {!field} seems to solve our issue. Much appreciate your help

try using {!field} instead of {!prefix}.  {!field} will create a phrase query (or term query
if it’s just one term) after analysis.  [it also could construct other query types if the
analysis overlaps tokens, but maybe not relevant here]

Also note that you can use multiple of these expressions if needed:  q={!prefix f=field1 v=$f1_val}
OR {!prefix f=field2 v=$f2_val} where &f1_val=<field 1 value>&f2_val=<field2
