Yours must be an earlier model. The later models utilized a "holding valve", which controlled the free wheeling. They come up on ebay from time to time, but are pricey. I think that's about your only option besides making darn sure your brake is in good working order.

You are looking for a "Pressure responsive flow control valve for directional control valve".
Check with your local Hydraulic Guru. His price my be better
than EBay.

The attached PDF explains it uses and operation. They are available in several forms i.e. with and without the control spool.

You haven't said what year your tractor is and they didn't have the retard feature on the earlier Case tractors. It didn't come in till the later 70s if I remember right. Before Case added the holding valve to the travel spool they had an add on holding valve that was plumbed in between the travel valve and the trans motor. It was just a small box with the valve built in.
I'm not the hydraulics wiz so I'm not sure what ducky has linked to but a Case flow control valve is different from the Case holding valve.
Let me know if you decide you need a holding valve for your 400 series.
Welcome to the forum.

It's pre '72. Could be '69,70'or'71. Does it have the snap-fast pins in the front?

I have just purchased my first Case, it is a 1978 444, so will this have the same issue? Thanks

If the previous owner has not installed a holding valve, you will have the same issue.

I have one of the last 195's made and I just pull the lever into the reverse position a little to slow the downward motion. When I first bought it sure was a scary ride down the big hill next to my house. Biggest mistake was being in high gear. Low gear doesn't run away as fast. Also bought an owners manual to help figure it out. Lovin it now!
