Pre-Stain Wood Condition?

I am going to stain the wood table again. I saw an uneven wood at the top of the table. Can I use Pre-Stain Wood Condition before using the stain again

Normally you only use a wood conditioner [prestain] on soft woods that are bare [no finish] I doubt there is anything to be gained by using it on your table top.

I would completely strip that surface before applying any stain.
