The other thing that happens is it is hard to do it in the time frame, I know it is possible because I did it in 8:33 and the target is 8:30. I have spent almost 3 hours on this 1 stage and haven't come close to that time again.
Do you have the Diamond Dash battleset equipped?
The best approach is use up on your
when it seems you're not gaining much on the enemy to do the rescue. Once you do get it, hit back on your
and then hit up on it to get a good fast start. To gain prowess, dive and collect coins. Only bother with enemies on the way back if you need prowess (and by deal, I mean counter). If you don't need any, when they get really close to hitting you just hit left or right on
and you'll hardly lose any momentum from flying.
