In alkali metal group which is the strongest reducing agent in aqueous solution and why?

Lithium (Li) is the strongest reducing agent. Since I.P. decreases down the group we would expect that Li will have the lowest reducing power in that group. But since its hydration energy is very high and which in fact decreases down the group, Li will have highest reducing 
power.
