Is the scratch deep enough to catch your finger nail in? If not then a machine polisher with a compound will get it out.

If your nail catches, then you'll need to look at a proper touch up kit / respray

No I don't thinks it's deep enough so I will try a compound first

start with seeing if your nail catches on it - as stated above.

if not, start with a fine polish, and work your way more corse, using a finishing pad - till its removed and then back to fine again.

if it catches, use a cutting pad and a corse polish, working your way fine, this will remove some of it. then get it touched up.

OR

you confident to take wet / dry to it?

do the above and then wash the area, what ever is left, spray 1000grit and lightly, very lightly rub over the top of it. every 2/3 rubs, wipe it down with a wet cloth, flip the paper, spray it and go again, until its gone.

then polish it with a finishing pad to bring it back up.

IF its down do the actual base coat or deeper, i.e to the panel, similar principles apply but more work needed.
