You should be using a brad point bit, a backer board and applying adequate downward pressure on the work to prevent it from lifting. I don’t think a forstener bit would work better because I think it would tend to “grab” the thin veneer going in and coming out. You need the outside cutting edge of a brad point to cleanly score the edge of the hole. Some forstener bits have that a toothed edge that may work.
