If you can fit the QR skewer to hold the removal tool in place, that can help a bit as you don't have to worry about it slipping out under force.

I use a socket wrench with a big spanner slipped over the end for extra leverage on stubborn nuts and bolts, could that do the trick here?

You are turning the chain whip anticlockwise right? :laugh:
Like already suggested get a bigger spanner so you have more leverage.
Try dousing the lock ring in WD40, may help loosen it up
