Analyzing the frequency of the letters, we find that most letters occur 4 times in the sequence. The full frequency is shown below:
enter image description here

Now notice that there are 8 letters with less than 4 occurances, and 2 with more than 4. Combinations of all the letters with a frequency other than 4 don't yield much progress, but if you look at just the letters with less than 4 occurances, they sum to 9.

Filtering out all other letters, we get

Giving us the solution:

Quadruple
