Are you sure the paint is single stage?

It's always hard to tell from a picture but I'm optimistic you can make a big improvement in the finish of the paint. A small portion of the scratch looks a bit too deep, but again hard to say. I would highly recommend you wash and clay the surface to help clean it. Next start off with a light polish like the Meguiar's Ultra Finishing Polish M205 but most likely you'll need to move up to the Meguiar's Ultra-Cut Compound M105 to remove more of the imperfections. Follow up the M105 with the M205 to remove any haze left behind and that area should look significantly better. Good luck!
