Don’t run a sanding drum in a router collet. Not safe.

Get a curved microplane or Iwasaki file and use it to
shape the hole. Then hand sanding starting at 60
grit or so goes pretty quick.

A standard curved rasp leaves quite a rough cut but
can be followed by a curved file and then sanding.

The microplane tools don’t stay sharp all that long
but they do cut very cleanly with a lot of control.
The curved Iwasaki file won’t do as fast a job
rounding the hole edges, but they stay sharp and
are great tools to have on hand for wood shaping.
