2080Ti / CUDA 10.1 issues

I have a working Theano installation set up on my older PC (GTX1080, CUDA 9)

I have a new PC fitted with a 2080Ti card that I am porting my projects to. 

From experimentation so far, it seems that I am forced to use CUDA 10.1 with my 2080Ti (because CUDA < 10 installations fail to find the device). 
This should be no problem though, as from what I understand, Theano 1.0.3 does support CUDA 10.1

I have followed the setup instructions here: http://deeplearning.net/software/theano/requirements.html as I did before.
I note that by using Theano 1.0.3 I am not able to use pygpu 0.6.9 as recommended. This is because the dependency solver demands that I use pygpu 0.7.6

I am unable to get the environment to use the gpu:

from theano import function, config, shared, tensor
import numpy
import time

vlen = 10 * 30 * 768 # 10 x #cores x # threads per core
iters = 1000

rng = numpy.random.RandomState(22)
x = shared(numpy.asarray(rng.rand(vlen), config.floatX))
f = function([], tensor.exp(x))
t0 = time.time()
for i in range(iters):
r = f()
t1 = time.time()
print("Looping %d times took %f seconds" % (iters, t1 - t0))
print("Result is %s" % (r,))
if numpy.any([isinstance(x.op, tensor.Elemwise) and
('Gpu' not in type(x.op).__name__)
for x in f.maker.fgraph.toposort()]):
print('Used the cpu')
print('Used the gpu')

My Anaconda environment is detailed in the attached environment.yml file.

I have tried moving and renaming dlls as suggested here: https://github.com/Theano/Theano/issues/6681#issuecomment-482819279
But with no joy. Plus, I'd be a lot happier to find a less hacky fix than renaming dlls to pretend they are different versions!

This is my third day on this, so any help would be gratefully received.
