I have a press handstand from the floor and I currently do the drill where you cast-toes on- jump to handstand-fall over the bar at almost every practice. However I still feel like I'm not leaning forwards when I go for the actual cast handstand. I always push away from the bar. Any tips?

Try missing your feet on the bar. Cast, toes pass the bar, handstand. It's the same motion, but you don't get your feet on the bar

Also think about piking in your cast handstand. Think shoulders over, pike/butt up, then bring your legs together. You know the stretch where you are in a straddle and try to get you stomach to the ground. Try to do that after you lean and push on the bar. Using shapes is a lot easier than muscling up
