Jake Trueman scored a hat-trick as Hull faced up to an early finish to this 25, to depart Castleford.
Even the was contained in the Great Britain performance squad this week and enhanced its burgeoning standing in a Super League record 44-12 win against the Airlie Birds.
The scoring started prior to a Trueman handed the home side a firm grip on the match.
Masi Matongo went for Hull’s opening try but Trueman made it a treble before Jordan Rankin, James Clare and Matt Cook finished the visitors’ distress after Jack Logan work.
The outcome observed Daryl Powell’s team leapfrog their opponents to the top five ahead of the final fixture of their regular season against Wigan.
Hull hope other results go their own way and must now beat runaway leaders St Helens next week.
The Black and Whites moved into the match on the rear of home defeats to Huddersfield and Salford, and there were indications of the fragility which had left them clinging on to their play-off place as Castleford took control of the competition .
It required the Tigers eight minutes to get Blair to the board, the Melbourne center pushing his way out wide after old boys Liam Watts and the visitors had been opened by Rankin up.
An error by Logan out of a kick gave ideal area position to Castleford and they made it count as an outrageous dummy threw to shoot Sika Manu and Albert Kelly .
Hull were treading water and they conceded a third attempt in 10 minutes when Trueman took advantage of tackling to cruise under the posts.
Hull have been lately on the incorrect end of many blowouts and they were on course for another defeat following Jamie Ellis added his fourth goal in the penalty.
The Airlie Birds gave themselves a glimmer of hope once Matongo reached out to score and charged on to a flat pass by Kelly.
Tevita Satae was held as Hull sought another attempt before half-time and when they resumed after the interval had gone.
Seventy-eight seconds was all it took for Trueman to allow himself as the Tigers kept the ball alive after an error from Ratu Naulago coming away from his line.
Daniel Smith was denied a dent when he was adjudged to have knocked about attempting to floor the grubber kick of Paul McShane but there was.
Jake Connor bombed a particular try if Jamie Shaul has been shown a yellow card for a foul on Rankin after a break and it made worse for Hull.
But out of nowhere the Black and Whites strike again, Carlos Tuimavave choosing off a kick from Rankin and giving Logan a sprint into the line.
That just delayed the inevitable because Clare place the outcome beyond any doubt using a conclusion at the corner and a kick touched from the Trueman.
Connor rounded off if he was sin-binned for dissent, to overlook and Cook had the last sentence with the seventh try of Castleford.
