Studies I have read indicate that morning exercise can burn more bodyfat if performed before you start consuming calories for the day. Because your body does burn calories while you sleep it uses up most of your glycogen reserves while you sleep. Exercising before you consume more calories forces the body to finish off those same glycogen reserves and when they are gone the body start converting your stored bodyfat into glycogen for energy.

I find it hard to exercise in the morning and find it much more enjoyable in the evening. As 1Dwing said it is still more important that you exercise and eat at a deficit than when you exercise.
